Hi, there’s a mistake on the accompanying worksheets (the second one – VF). GD says ‘put in the missing numerator’ when the numerator is already given, it’s the denominator that’s missing. Also, I’m not what you mean by ‘highest common denominator’ for the fractions listed – do you mean lowest common denominator? Or do you mean the highest common denominator in the fractions given?

Lots of errors on these varied fluency sheets! Are the answers to the addition calculations meant to be written as an addition or a subtraction?

Hi quite a few errors on the worksheets.

Highest common denominator instead of lowest for example.

Also, some of the + and – symbols are incorrect within the questions.

Slides 15-17 have ‘look at the addition below’ think it should be ‘look at the subtraction below’. A great set of resources – thank you

Hi, thank you for letting us know! I’ve now changed this on the powerpoint – hopefully you were able to edit it at your end for your lesson! Many thanks, Sian 🙂

Do you have add and subtract fractions 2 (numbers greater than 1)?
