SUBTRACTING FRACTIONS WITH UNLIKE DENOMINATORS - WALKING WORKSHEETS

I love these. A clipboard and a blank sheet, the students are on the move and working at the same time. There is just something about a clipboard.

Today there are 18 problems placed around the room in a random order. They find a problem and place it in its correct location on their paper. These are all mixed number problems that do not require regrouping. 

The last 4 problems I gave them the answer to the problem and they have to create the problem. This really tests their knowledge.




FRACTION FUNDAMENTALS - PRACTICE


















Yesterday and today in class students used the Pre-Algebra app by MATH Domain to review/assess their fraction skills.

WALKING WORKSHEETS (ADDING & SUBTRACTING FRACTIONS)

I posted 15 add/subtract fractions with unlike denominator problems all around the room. The students were given this worksheet to fill out. Students were instructed to go to a problems, work it and then come back to me for a conference. I signed it and gave a check (correct) or an x (incorrect). At the end of class students added their checks for bonus points.

This was a great opportunity for me to see where the struggles still were. For the most part the struggle is still remembering to simplify.

Students are working on preparing an informational piece to tell how to add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators. SHHHHHH don't tell them but it doesn't matter what they choose to make to demonstrate, they are learning!!!!! (Maniacal Laugh)
