This Common Core aligned fraction word problem pack features five engaging sets of word problems, all featuring adding/subtracting fractions with unlike denominators - a rich resource of fraction word problems! Use them for teaching, practice, review, homework, morning work, stations, assessments, remediation, or acceleration.
A complete differentiation option is included. In this option, the number of choices on the charts is reduced. The fractions used are only benchmark fractions: ¼, ½, ¾. This option will be excellent to differentiate in small group work, individual homework, or any time students struggle.
All of the word problems are a variation of 4.NF.2, 5.NF.1, and 5.NF.2.
Challenge questions and concept-development questions are included.
Each page is labeled as a “set” – Sets A, B, C, D, and E. I strongly recommend requiring students to model each solution as well as show their computations. There is room for modeling and computation.
Answers are included at the end.
