Lesson 18 – Fractions – Subtracting Mixed Number Fractions – Creating Improper Fractions

LO: Subtracting mixed number fractions

SC1. I can find a common denominator

SC2. I can create improper fractions

SC3. I can subtract and solve improper fraction problems.

In the last lesson we started to look at subtracting mixed number fractions. We learnt that it was easier to subtract the fractions if we have a common denominator.

Today, we will be looking at problems where we need to change the Mixed Number Fractions into Improper Fractions.

I have put together a video and a PowerPoint to help you understand this new concept.



Today, I would like you to solve the questions attached to the bottom of the page and self-mark using the answers.

Challenge Questions

You will find challenge questions and answers at the end of today’s PowerPoint.
