1. Add Fractions and Mixed Numbers

2. Add Fractions and Mixed Numbers Ex) At the end of the pizza lunch, Mr. Green’s class had 1/4 of a pizza left, and Mr. Black’s class had 2/3 of a pizza left. How can we describe the total amount of leftover pizza?

3. Add and Subtract Fractions Ex) At the end of the pizza lunch, Mr. Green’s class had 1/4 of a pizza left, and Mr. Black’s class had 2/3 of a pizza left. How can we describe the total amount of leftover pizza? Mr. Green’s Pizza =

4. Add and Subtract Fractions Ex) At the end of the pizza lunch, Mr. Green’s class had 1/4 of a pizza left, and Mr. Black’s class had 2/3 of a pizza left. How can we describe the total amount of leftover pizza? Mr. Black’s Pizza = Mr. Green’s Pizza =

5. Add and Subtract Fractions Ex) At the end of the pizza lunch, Mr. Green’s class had 1/4 of a pizza left, and Mr. Black’s class had 2/3 of a pizza left. How can we describe the total amount of leftover pizza? Can we say that there are 3 slices left? Mr. Black’s Pizza = Mr. Green’s Pizza =

6. Add and Subtract Fractions Ex) At the end of the pizza lunch, Mr. Green’s class had 1/4 of a pizza left, and Mr. Black’s class had 2/3 of a pizza left. How can we describe the total amount of leftover pizza? Can we say that there are 3 slices left? No, because that would ignore the fact that they are different sizes. Mr. Black’s Pizza = Mr. Green’s Pizza =

7. Add and Subtract Fractions Ex) At the end of the pizza lunch, Mr. Green’s class had 1/4 of a pizza left, and Mr. Black’s class had 2/3 of a pizza left. How can we describe the total amount of leftover pizza? Can we say that there are 3 slices left? No, because that would ignore the fact that they are different sizes. ie) Would it be 3 quarters or 3 thirds or something else? Mr. Black’s Pizza = Mr. Green’s Pizza =

8. Add and Subtract Fractions We need to change the leftover amounts so that they are in pieces of the same size. Mr. Black’s Pizza = Mr. Green’s Pizza =

9. Add and Subtract Fractions We need to change the leftover amounts so that they are in pieces of the same size. Mr. Black’s Pizza = Mr. Green’s Pizza = =

16. Add and Subtract Fractions Mr. Black’s Pizza = 2/3 = 8/12 Mr. Green’s Pizza = 1/4 = 3/12 Now that we are dealing with pieces of the same size, we can add the amounts together: Remember, just add the numerators!

17. Add and Subtract Fractions Mr. Black’s Pizza = 2/3 = 8/12 Mr. Green’s Pizza = 1/4 = 3/12 Now that we are dealing with pieces of the same size, we can add the amounts together: We can now describe the leftover amount.

18. Add and Subtract Fractions Mr. Black’s Pizza = 2/3 = 8/12 Mr. Green’s Pizza = 1/4 = 3/12 Now that we are dealing with pieces of the same size, we can add the amounts together: We can now describe the leftover amount. There is 11/12 of a pizza left.

19. Add and Subtract Fractions When working with fractions, changing amounts into pieces of the same size is called finding a common denominator.
