Students will get to practice the skill of adding and subtracting mixed numbers with unlike denominators with this activity.
This activity is also differentiated: There are number equations on one activity and the following activity is a bit more of a challenge since they are word problems, and the student has to pick the correct operation.
I have also included a Operation Key Word Chart that students can use with this activity or any other activity that invloves word problems.
You will need to download a QR code reader app on an iPod or an iPad, etc. ( I use RedScanner, but there are many other free ones.)
Students will solve the problem, and then check their answers using the QR Code Reader App.
I use this with my students and they love it!
