PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This product uses the butterfly method, or cross multiplying method, to help students solve problems of addition and subtraction of fractions. The butterfly method is demonstrated at the following site www.moveitmaththesource.com/realfractions/butterflyfractio.html.
I created a demonstration page for the students but students may use the tradition method of finding the LCM to solve the puzzle.
