Lesson 15 – Fractions – Add 3 or more Fractions (two denominators)

LO: To add 3 of more fractions

SC1. I can identify different denominators.

SC2. I can find a common denominator.

SC3. I can simplify fractions if required.

Over the last few days we have been adding and subtracting fractions. Today, we are looking at adding 3 or more fractions. These fraction problems may or may not have common denominators. To solve these fraction problems we will use many of the skills which we have been learning over the last few days.

Watch the following video (start the video from 1 minute and 55 seconds):



To support your understanding of the concept I have created a PowerPoint for you to now refer to. In the PowerPoint you will see a step by step guide to solving this type of problem.

Today, I would like you to answer the questions you will find on the worksheets attached below. You will find the answer attached to the end of the sheets so you can self-mark.

Challenge Questions

There are challenge questions on today’s PowerPoint. Answers are at the end of the PowerPoint.
