EngageNY 60 min(s)

In this lesson, students use fraction cards to find patterns when adding fractions. Students arrange fractions cards in various ways to discover patterns beginning with a set of even denominators before using odd denominators. After, the class discuss student discoveries before going on to apply the pattern to find the sum of consecutive fractions with large denominators.
