Add and Subtract Mixed Numbers - Digital & Printable
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 printable and digital resource pack.
This resource is complete, concise, and easy to follow with a clear format. It is low-prep, easy to assign to a sub, and contains engaging printable activities and digital versions for use with Google Classroom. 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

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 displaying the PDF or pulling the slides up on a Smartboard if you’re in person or share the screen online if you’re teaching virtually.
Gradually release students to practice independently using the practice pages or slides activities. 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.
