All methods have been used effectively in the classroom to help my students become more proficient at handling these topics. I have included tips and examples. All student notes sheets and practice problems include keys that show you exactly how to use the methods described in this e-book. For each topic, there is also a UBD lesson plan already created for you to merely have to print out and put your name at the top! Try these methods and you will LOVE teaching fractions (Yes...I actually LOVE teaching them!!!) Bonus Feature: you can request free videos that supplement the lessons in this e-book.
CCSS.5.NF.A.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. For example, 2/3 + 5/4 = 8/12 + 15/12 = 23/12. (In general, a/b + c/d = (ad + bc)/bd.)
