Add Fractions - 5th Grade Math

In the previous grade, students add fractions with like denominators. In Add Fractions Worksheet, they add two fractions with unlike denominators. They do so by using their previous knowledge of equivalence of fractions to replace the fractions by those with like denominators. For example, 2/3 + 1/6 = 4/6 + 1/6 = 5/6.
