Adding and Subtracting Fractions and Mixed Numbers with UNLIKE Denominators 1. Butterfly Method 2. 4 Square Method

Copyright 2013 by Monica Yuskaitis 30 What are we doing today? Agenda: 1. Review Fraction

Vocabulary 2. Review Adding and Subtracting Fractions with LIKE denominators 3. The Butterfly Method for adding and subtracting unlike fractions

4. Practice A recipe calls for cup of regular sugar and 2/3 cup of brown sugar. How much sugar is there altogether? We cant add two fractions together when

the denominators are different. So, we can use a fun trick called the Butterfly Method to help us! Lets go to the next slide to try it out

Butterfly Method http://safeYouTube.net/w/lRmf The Butterfly Method A recipe calls for cup of regular sugar and 2/3 cup of brown sugar. How much sugar is there

altogether? More examples of the Butterfly Method for adding and subtracting unlike fractions: Lets try it with mixed numbers!

We will need to use improper fractions Practice Add 2 Fractions - Butterfly Before you go Finish the problem!

Day 2 What are we doing today? Agenda: 1. Least Common Denominator (4 Square

Method for adding fractions) 2. Adding Fractions & Mixed Numbers Least Common Denominator Method

You cannot add or subtract fractions if the denominators are different numbers. Step 1: List the first few multiples of the two denominators Step 2: Find the least

common denominator Step 3: Use this to make equivalent fractions Step 4: Then add the numerators but keep the same denominator

http://safeYouTube.net/w/IQmf Least Common Denominator Add the whole number parts first, Method mixed numbers save that answer for later. For the Fraction Parts:

List the first few multiples of the two denominators Find the least common denominator Use this to make equivalent fractions Then add the numerators but keep

the same denominator Simplify your fraction and then add it back to the whole numbers from the beginning!

2+1 You cannot add or subtract fractions if the denominators are different numbers. Step 1: List the first few multiples of the two

denominators Step 2: Find the least common denominator Step 3: Use this to make equivalent fractions Step 4: Then add the numerators but keep the

same denominator DAY 3 What are we doing today?

You cannot add or subtract fractions if the denominators are different numbers. Step 1: Find the least common denominator

Step 2: Use this to make equivalent fractions Step 3: Then add the numerators but keep the same denominator Denominators are

like socks! We want them to match up before we combine them. Monday

Modeled Examples Mixed Numbers You cannot add or subtract fractions if the denominators are different numbers. Step 1: Find the least

common denominator of the fractions Step 2: Use this to make equivalent fractions Step 3: Then Add the numerators but keep the same denominator. Add

the whole numbers! Simplify Your Answers! Independent Practice 1. Find the Least

Common Denominator between _____ and _____. 2. Rewrite equivalent
