The focus of this lesson is to practice seeing numbers as factors. In an Egyptian Fraction, all of the denominators are groups of common factors. The lesson is designed to teach students how to add fractions in the same way that algebraic fractions are added. I have been successfully teaching students at the high school level mastery of fractions. This is a critical "bridge" lesson between mastery of prime factorization to laying the foundation towards mastery of operations with fractions. These skills are critical building blocks to Algebra skills in factoring, algebraic fractions, radicals, and logarithms. Over the years, I have seen too many students struggle in Algebra because of not being able to manage factors mentally.
This is an introduction lesson for teaching operations with fractions.
