PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Teach your students how to add and subtract fractions with these fun story problems. Students draw pictures, so they can visualize the fractions. This helps students develop number sense, problem solving skills, and critical thinking skills.

Each problem is broken down into 3 different frames. Students draw pictures and write numbers in the frames to help them visualize the math problems.

Adding Fractions

Students write fractions in the first and second frames. They add them together to find a total in the third frame.

Subtracting Fractions

In the first frame, students write a fraction for the total amount of objects in the math problem. For instance, if there are 10 objects, students will write the fraction 10/10. In the second frame, students write a fraction for a select group of objects in the problem. Students subtract these two fractions in the third frame.

Altogether, 12 story problems are included. This is a great way to teach your students how to record and synthesize information when solving a math problem.
