For this activity, students are to partake in a math gallery walk. Around the room are nine questions, enlarged on posters. Their task is to read through each word problem, determine the operation(either addition or subtraction), and solve it! The tricky part is the numbers involved are fractions with unlike denominators. They must find a common denominator before completing the operation. Included in this resource are the slide questions which can be made into posters, hints on each "slide" for students to refer to, and extensions provided on each "slide" for students who finish early. This can also be printed out as a student activity worksheet instead of having it as a gallery walk.
