Fractions! Are fractions a mystery to your students? Need some extra practice? This fractions activity includes 56 task cards that deal with adding and subtracting fractions with unlike denominators. Set 1 (Red) is addition of mixed numbers (the first 10 cards are like denominators). Set 2 (Blue) is subtraction of mixed numbers (the first 10 cards are also like denominators). Students add or subtract, then determine if the fraction is in lowest terms, and if it isn't, they simplify it. An answer sheet and six extra practice pages are included in this packet. Two pages cover adding fractions, two cover subtracting fractions, and two are mixed practice. The cards are in color, but have been tested and will print well in black and white.
Ideas for using these task cards:
1) Use in a center.
2) Use for small group instruction.
3) Use as assessment for checking student's ability to move on to the next skill.
4) Set out for use by those who finish their work early.
5) Use for partner work. Students choose a card and their partner works the problem out on a white board or scrap paper. Check each others answers.
6) Use these as a part of whole class lessons.
7) Play Scoot!
