Today in class…with our warm-up, we found we needed to review the procedure for adding and subtracting fractions. We practiced adding/subtracting fractions following the rules for adding and subtracting with positive and negative numbers. We also watched a PBS Math Club on Subtracting Integers.

Virtual Nerd has a variety of lessons on the concepts associated with adding and subtracting fractions that can be reviewed as well.

**Practice(Homework): ** 1) Adding & Subtracting Rational Numbers – Fractions WS – choose 3 with like denominators & 3 with unlike denominators. Remember, you cannot count any that we did together in class. 2) Review the subtraction rules for our CFU tomorrow.

**Please be sure to turn in your 4 dry erase markers to me as soon as possible. These are for student use in class with our 360 degree whiteboards. Thanks!**
