Adding and Subtracting Fractions

Author: Mandy Casto

The objective of this lesson is for students to learn the process of adding and subtracting decimals, by lining up numbers based on their place value, and using the arithmetic skills they learned in previous lessons.

Decimals are used everyday in many disciplines, including the sciences, accounting, and economics. Students must develop number sense awareness, including place values involving decimals and how to add and subtract decimals, so that they can apply this skill when needed in the real world.
