Subtracting fractions with unlike denominators guide

Students today are on fire. I am enjoying the high quality work that is being prdocued today. Thomas C has done an AMAZING job creating a maths guide for our subtraction workshop. He explored the steps that you needed to subtract fractions with unlike denominators. I highly recommend that you print and read the two guides today. Here is the guide.

Subtracting fractions cheat sheet

Percentage cheat sheet

Here is the latest cheat sheet offering from Montana. Thank you to those students who print and use these sheets. Montana will explain how to create them:

“First I pick the important words and define them on the Jenny Eather website. Then I choose visuals that will help me remember. Next I try to explain the maths in my own words. Finally I add the heading and change fonts.”

Thanks Montana for such excellent work!



Subtraction Assignment

Our maths workshops over the next two weeks will focus on showing how to solve a variety of subtraction problems using different strategies. Our key focus for  each session will include:

1. Subtracting numbers using a mental strategy of taking the highest value first

2. Using a written method to solve a subtraction problem

3. Subtract fractions that have different denominators

4. Subtracting decimal numbers

You will need to present your learning in a four row flip book. Happy learning!
