Standards
• N M7.1.4.K2d The student adds, subtracts,
multiplies, and divides fractions and expresses
• M8.1.4.A1bThe student models, performs, and
explains computation with rational numbers, the
irrational number pi, and algebraic expressions
in a variety of situations.

3
Vocabulary
• Common denominators
• Denominator
• Dividend
• Division
• Equivalent fraction
• Fraction
• Improper fraction
• Least common denominator
• Lowest terms
• Minuend
• Mixed number
• Numerator
• Proper fraction
• Quotient
• Simplify
• Subtrahend
• Unit fraction

4
Objectives
• Develop concepts of fractions and mixed numbers
• Use models to add, subtract, multiply and divide
fractions
• Add, subtract, multiply, divide fractions and
mixed numbers

5
Pull out your fraction circles and sort them by
colors. The clear circle is the number 1 or 1
whole.
6
Do the same with the fraction tiles. Sort them
by color.

7
Adding Fractions Using Fraction Circles or
Fraction Tiles
• Which colored circle or tile will you need to add
these fractions? Explain.
• Because the fraction has a denominator of 4, find
the fraction piece that has been divided into
fourths.
• Take the ¼ piece and add to it the piece.

8
Adding Fractions Using Fraction Circles or Tiles
Use either fraction circles or tiles to model
Again, look at the denominator and choose your
tiles accordingly.

9
Adding Fractions Using Fraction Circles or Tiles
Use either fraction circles or tiles to model
• Notice we do not have like denominators. This
makes it more of a challenge. Begin by taking
the ½ and the 1/3 and find tiles or circles that
are exactly the same size.
• Did you find like tiles? Explain.
• If you found tiles or parts of a circle that have
a denominator of 6, you were correct.
• Notice the ½ matches up with 3/6 and the 1/3
matches up with 2/6.

Subtracting Fractions
• Visual approach using fraction tiles or fraction
circles

15
Subtracting Fractions using fraction circles or
fraction tiles
• What is ? Again we will have to find
like denominators. Which sets of tiles or
circles will work? Explain.
• If you guessed the 10ths you were right, 6/10

Multiplying fractions
• Multiplying fractions is like finding what one
fraction is of another.
