Grades: 6,7,8

Description: In this deck, students will add fractions with common denominators BUT they will need to use their knowledge of positive and negative numbers to help figure out the solution. With over 50 cards, students can play this deck a few times before getting repeat questions. Working with fractions is tough for some students, so we're taking this slow by first working with common denominators. By just focusing on the numerators, students can build their confidence. The first card fo this deck reviews how to add fractions and give hints on how to determine the sign of the solution. The first deck in this series uses the same fractions, but the students only need to determine if the solution is positive or negative. The third deck in this series uses the same cards, but this time students have to simplify their answers.
