Add and Subtract Fractions Interactive Animation

Teacher Specific Information

This Add and Subtract Fractions Interactive Animation includes six questions designed to check pupils’ understanding of adding and subtracting fractions where denominators are not direct multiples of the same number. Pupils will identify a missing numerator, simplify a given fraction, find the lowest common multiple of two denominators, answer a subtraction calculation, drag and drop number cards and comparison symbols to complete given statements, and find an equivalent mixed number and improper fraction.
