WEEK THIRTEEN Adding and Subtracting Fractions  Watch both videos: 1st video we are going to go over adding and subtracting fractions that do not have the same denominator (unlike fractions). The first way to do this is to find the “easiest common denominator” of the two fractions. 2nd video we are going to go over the other way to add and subtract fractions that do not have the same denominator (unlike fractions). We will talk about finding the “least common denominator”. Then hand out the practice problems.
