Math – Fractions: Reducing, Adding & Subtracting, Converting

We area able to reduce fractions into their lowest terms:

  1. List all of the factors for each number of the fraction
  2. Find the Greatest Common Factor (GCF) of the two numbers
  3. Divide the numerator and the denominator by the GCF to reduce the fraction to its lowest terms

E.g., http://www.loisterms.com/quiz1gcf.htm

We are learning to add and subtract fractions

  1. Find the Lowest Common Multiple (LCM) of the denominators
  2. Create equivalent fractions using the LCM as the common denominator
  3. Add/Subtract the numerators (keeping the denominators the same)
  4. Simplify and reduce fraction to lowest terms

We are learning to convert between improper and mixed fractions:
