EngageNY 60 min(s)Support for English Language Learners

In this lesson, students use unit form and the number line to add a mixed number and a fraction having sums of fractional units less than or equal to 1. Next, students complete a unit of one to add a mixed number and a fraction then show on a number line. Finally, students add a mixed number and a fraction with sums of fractional units greater than 1. In one problem students decompose the sum in order to generate an equivalent mixed number, and in another problem students decompose a fractional addend to make one before finding the sum.
