This product provides another way to have students practice adding fractions with unlike denominators.
Each row of cards contains everything that is needed to write an equation concerning fractions with unlike denominators, where one of the fractions has to be renamed before adding to the other fraction.
The 16 problems are arranged in increasing levels of difficulty.
This product also includes templates and fraction rectangles that go along with some of the equation cards. The equation cards may be placed on a template to stay organized. The fraction rectangles may also be sorted to represent the equations as a way to check the equation.
This activity helps the students slow down and think before giving an answer. When the cards are glued to construction paper or other surface and hung on the wall, the student can take pride in his/her work and anyone can use it to help them review the process.
The product is suitable for use in a math center.
