Class Experience

In this course, students will learn how to:

-Add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators (including mixed numbers) by replacing given fractions with equivalent fractions in such a way as to produce an equivalent sum or difference of fractions with like denominators.

-Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions referring to the same whole, including cases of unlike denominators, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem. Use benchmark fractions and number sense of fractions to estimate mentally and assess the reasonableness of answers.
Optional homework will be provided on Wednesday each week. This is not required but extra practice can help students to solidify their skills. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Each week, students will complete a formal assessment to measure their skills. 
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
