Differing Like Denominators Worksheet

Worksheet Description

This worksheet is a math exercise focusing on the subtraction of fractions with like denominators. It presents fourteen problems, where each requires the student to subtract two or three fractions that share the same denominator. The task for the student is to perform the subtraction by deducting the numerators and writing the result in the provided spaces.

The worksheet aims to teach students the straightforward process of subtracting fractions when the denominators are identical, eliminating the need for finding a common denominator. By presenting problems that require direct subtraction of numerators, it reinforces the students’ understanding of fractions as parts of a whole and how those parts are combined or separated. The variety of denominators used provides a broad range of practice to ensure students are comfortable with different sets of like denominators. The self-evaluation section at the end encourages students to reflect on their own understanding of the material, fostering independent learning and assessment.
