Adding Like Fractions Worksheet

Worksheet Description

This worksheet is centered around the concept of adding fractions with the same denominator, titled “Least Common Denominator (Worksheet 4).” It provides students with eight sets of fractions that already have a common denominator, and the task is to add these fractions together. The design is straightforward, with each problem labeled from ‘a’ to ‘h’, and the fractions are presented in a clear, easy-to-read format.

The objective of this worksheet is to help students practice the skill of adding fractions that already share a common denominator. It reinforces the concept that when fractions have the same denominator, the numerators can be added directly while the denominator remains the same. This exercise is foundational for understanding how to combine fractions and serves as a precursor to adding fractions with different denominators. It aims to solidify students’ understanding of fraction addition, a key skill in elementary and middle school mathematics.
