WALT: Add/sub Fractions.
In my maths group today we were taking an understanding on adding and subtracting fractions. As our task we were expected to answer all the questions in the photo displayed above, this is something new that I wouldn’t have understood earlier. For Add/Sub fractions there are 3 steps, step 1: Check to see if the Denominators are the same as one another, if they are the same then go on with the adding/subtracting the numerator if not that is where step 2 comes in. Step 2: Turn the equation into an equivalent fraction (Find the lowest number where both denominators are to fit inside of) Step 3: This step only applies if the numerator is bigger than the denominator, if this is a case where the N is smaller than the D all you have to do is make it into an improper fraction.
