In this scaffolded lesson students are shown, step by step with concrete examples, how to convert whole and mixed numbers into equivalent fractions (borrowing). Then they are shown how to subtract a fraction/mixed number from a whole number. Included is a 1/2 sheet challenge where students see if they can quickly answer 12 subtracting a mixed number from a whole number problems within 1 minute. The final sheet shows them how to subtract mixed numbers with regrouping, both visually with a model and the traditional regrouping way. Both Word and PDF files are included so you can make changes if needed. Answer key is included.
