This packet works well for upper elementary grades, especially 4th, 5th, and 6th.
This packet is intended to be used in helping students use visual models to represent addition and subtraction of fractions with like and unlike denominators. There are 4 mini-lessons that each include a step-by-step directions page with a few practice problems, and an additional student practice page. The four mini-lessons are: adding fractions with like denominators, subtracting fractions with like denominators, adding fractions with unlike denominators, and subtracting fractions with unlike denominators.
Detailed answer key included.
Common Core Standard:
5.NF.1 Add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators (including mixed numbers) by replacing given fractions with equivalent fractions in such a way as to produce an equivalent sum or difference of fractions with like denominators.
