L/O: Fractions S/C: Adding Mixed Numbers

Children move on to adding two fractions where one or both are mixed numbers or an improper fraction. They will use a method of adding the wholes and then adding the parts. Children will record their answer in its simplest form. Children can still draw models to represent adding fractions.

Work through the following two methods of adding mixed numbers. Children to copy and complete examples in their books so they can choose which method they prefer when doing independent work later in the lesson.


Practise the methods above and create 5 more examples of your own to complete. Remember to add the whole number first, then convert the fractions so the denominator is the same and then add the fractions.
