Product Description
This includes two different games with varied skills related to subtracting fractions with uncommon denominators. Neither requires students to convert an improper fraction to a mixed number. All answers are proper fractions, smaller than 1. Differentiate for skills that students are ready for. Both games look similar, and the rules are the same for each game. As students are ready to advance to new skills, they will know how to play. See the game descriptions below which explain the different skills needed for each.

Game Descriptions:
Game 1– Players subtract basic fractions with unlike denominators without reducing.
This game would be great for students who are just starting to learn how to find the LCM or LCD to subtract fractions with uncommon denominators.

Game 2-Players subtract basic fractions with unlike denominators with reducing. This game requires that students find the LCM or LCD to subtract fractions with uncommon denominators and then reduce the fraction to lowest terms. It’s great for students who are comfortable with LCM/LCD and reducing.

What’s Included:
2 Differentiated Games for Subtracting Fractions with Unlike Denominators
Student Directions and Answer Keys for each game
Information for the Teacher
Place Markers (for students playing)
