8. Add Fractions (Sums greater than 1)
Practice adding like fractions (fractions with same denominators), which result in mixed numbers or improper fractions. Adding fractions is like adding different parts of a whole. In Add Fractions (Sums greater than 1) Worksheet, students use visual representations (area models and number lines and fraction strips) to model addition of fractions and add like fractions with sums greater than 1.
