Our Word Problems – Add & Subtract Fractions lesson plan teaches students how to interpret and solve word problems that require the addition or subtraction of fractions. During this lesson, students are asked to work collaboratively with a partner to create 2 addition, 2 subtraction, and 2 mixed fraction word problems along with an answer key for other students in the class to solve. Students are also asked to work independently to solve word problems that include the addition or subtraction of fractions, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson material.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to solve fraction addition and subtraction problems using models and other strategies.
