Unit 3, Lesson 6# Subtract fractions from numbers between 1 and 2.

EngageNY 60 min(s)

In this lesson, students continue to subtract fractions with unlike denominators by using equivalent fractions. These problems involve subtracting from numbers between 1 and 2. Students first subtract unit fractions by drawing a model and writing equations. For example, 1 1/5 - 1/3. Then they subtract non-unit fractions from a unit fraction with unlike denominators. Finally, students subtract two non-unit fractions with unlike denominators. All problems involve drawing a model and writing the corresponding steps.
