Application For Today’s Maths Lesson: Addition and Subtraction of Fractions

| 1 Comment

Practice Addition and Subtraction of Fractions – you may use a Fraction Wall or draw fraction diagrams to support your process.

1/2 + 1/4 =                    1/3 + 1/6 =                             3/4 + 1/8 =                         2/5 + 3/10 =                             1/2 + 3/8 =

1/2 – 1/4 =                     1/3 – 1/6 =                             1/4 – 1/8 =                          1/5 – 1/10                                1/2 – 1/8 =

 

1/3 + 1/7 =                 5/8 + 2/5 =                  1/3 + 3/10 =                     3/8 + 1/3  =                       3/5+ 5/9  =

1/3 – 1/7 =                7/8 – 2/5 =                   1/3 – 3/10                        3/8 – 1/3 =                       3/5 – 5/9 =

 

2 ⅓ + 3 ⅓ =                2 ¼ + 1 ½ =                   1⅖ + 4 ¾ =                        2 ⅖ + 1 ⅜=                        7 ⅔+ 4 ⅙=

5 ⅓ – 2  ⅓ =               3 ¼ – 2 ½ =                    5 ⅞- 3 ¼ =                         8 ⅖ – 6 ½ =                        9 – 3 ⅙=

 

Who needs to add and subtract fractions in real life situations?  Can you write a problem for another to solve that shows how we need to use fractions in work or at home?

 

Partners switch problems, solve and discuss.  Is the problem one that would occur in real life?  Do you and your partner agree on the solution?
