Use the standard algorithm to quickly and effectively teach your students how to add and subtract mixed numbers with unlike denominators as well as like denominators using this comprehensive resource pack.

This resource is complete, concise, and easy to follow with a clear format.  It is low-prep and easy to assign to a sub.  If your students are struggling with fraction operations, this resource is for you!

It is intended for 5th grade, but includes two mini-lessons with like denominators in case your students need a review from 4th grade.  It can also be used in a 4th grade math class in which the lessons with unlike denominators can be used for differentiation.

Standards:  5.NF.1, 5.NF.2

This resource is also part of my 5th Grade Math Year-Long Curriculum Bundle.

How Can You Use This? 

Introduce each skill with the detailed set of notes and sample problems.  I suggest doing this in a whole group setting and pulling the PDF up on a Smartboard so students can annotate over the models.

Gradually release students to practice independently using the practice pages.  Check for understanding and mastery after teaching each skill using the exit tickets.

When all skills have been taught, provide additional practice and review using the set of task cards, then assess with the final quiz when you feel students are ready.
