Each of these 20 fraction pairs needs to be totaled, but that's not all there is to do! Scholars find the least common denominator first, then reduce the answer to simplest form if needed. These practice problems are excellent in the sense that they guide pupils through each step to solve. If the answer needs to be reduced, they know it because there is an extra space for them to fill in. Some even have an extra space for the fraction to be turned into a mixed number.There are two examples showing this process clearly, so scholars are set up to succeed.

Fractions can be tricky, so be sure any independent practice worksheets you assign guide scholars through steps like this one. There are two examples showing mathematicians how to add fractions and reduce the answer to simplest terms. Each of these 33 equations has like denominators, so scholars simply add the numerators across and simplify. The first six have denominators already written into the answer. Any sums requiring simplifying prompt scholars to continue working by providing an additional space. This is an excellent approach to worry-free fraction addition.

The steps are laid out in these fraction addition practice problems. Scholars add fractions with common denominators, making sure to reduce to the simplest form. For all of these, that means turning a simplified improper fraction into a mixed number. The format of these equations is helpful in assisting scholars through each step, and is scaffolded to give them less hints as they go. There are 21 total, but they aren't numbered. Consider hand-numbering them before copying to make review easier.

All of these fraction pairs have common denominators, so adding them up is a bit simpler. There are two examples demonstrating both a mixed number and reducing to simplest terms. Scholars add up 28 fraction pairs, simplifying when necessary. They get a clue here, as there are extra spaces for those fractions that need another step or are a mixed number.
