This worksheet guides students through using area models for subtracting fractions with unlike denominators. All problems are set up from word problems. The first page is an instructional page showing how to use the models. Pages 2 - 6 include 10 problems (2 per page) for students to solve. The first five problems set up the fraction model for students to use. While the last five problems just include a box for students to make their own model. An answer key is included.
