National Center on Intensive Intervention

This video demonstrates how to use fraction tiles to add fractions with unlike denominators. Teachers should model how to find like denominators to solve addition problems and students who struggle may benefit from using a multiples chart. Students should also have many opportunities adding fractions that have a sum equal to or greater than 1.
