Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions referring to the same whole and having like denominators, e.g., by using visual fraction models and equations to represent the problem.

Big Idea:
In this lesson, students review strategies for adding mixed numbers and then work through how to subtract mixed numbers in an inquiry type of approach.

Big Idea:
In this lesson students work in small groups to multiply a fraction with a whole number and then participate in a math gallery walk in order to deepen their understanding of fraction concepts.

Big Idea:
In this lesson, students work with partners to play a card game in which they can refine and practice the skill of multiplying a fraction with a whole number.

Big Idea:
Students will measure various pencils to the nearest 1/4 inch, make a line plot, and solve problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions.

Big Idea:
Students will develop comprehensive understanding and flexible skills by using concrete manipulatives and pictorial representations of a mathematical situation.

Big Idea:
Students apply strategies they have used for whole number word problems, but use fractions this time. They also discover that they can use fractional models to help them solve problems.

Big Idea:
This assessment shows if students know how to add and subtract fractions with like denominators. They also show their skills in applying this understanding to word problems.

Big Idea:
This test assesses a variety of problem solving skills involving addition and subtraction of fractions with like denominators, using decomposition, and fractional models to prove their work.
