Measuring Mixed Numbers

Mixed numbers can be added conceptually, algorithmically, and physically. Have the class visualize mixed numbers by adding fraction bars together. They then discover the algorithmic process that simplifies adding mixed numbers. Finally, they "act out" the addition of mixed numbers by measuring different amounts of liquid and pouring them into a container. The total amount of liquid should be equal to the total arrived at previously.
