Students will begin adding and subtracting fractions with different denominators with the help of bar models throughout this worksheet. The bar models are pre-drawn so learners are required to shade the bar models as appropriate.
In section A, pupils will answer five additional questions after looking over an example of this method being used. Section B also begins with an example and then students will answer five subtraction questions.
This worksheet is ideal for students struggling to find equivalent fractions. All questions contain fractions with denominators less than or equal to 12 and in each pair one denominator is a multiple of the other.
