Lesson 16 – Fractions – Adding Mixed Number Fractions

LO: To be able to add mixed number fractions.

SC1. I can explain strategies for solving different mixed number problems.

SC2. I can find common denominators.

SC3. I can solve mixed number problems.

Over the last few days we have begun to learn to add and subtract fractions. These problems included both questions with the same denominator and different denominators. In these questions we used our knowledge to help us recognise when we needed to find a common denominator and we used our times tables to help us find the common denominator and then solve the fraction number problem.

Today, we are going to be using the same skills to help us add Mixed Number Fractions.

Remember that a Mixed Number Fraction includes integers (whole numbers) and proper fractions e.g. 4 and 3/5.

Watch the following video to see how to add mixed number fractions:



I have also put together a video to show you how to solve problems which are more challenging:




I have also provided a PowerPoint to help support your learning.

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