# Subtract Algebraic Fractions

## Worksheet Description

This worksheet is an educational resource for teaching the subtraction of fractions through visual models. It contains three subtraction problems, each accompanied by a number line that illustrates fractions as distances. Students are required to complete the “subtraction sentence” for each problem by determining the difference between two points on the number line and writing this difference as a fraction.

The worksheet’s objective is to help students connect the abstract concept of subtracting fractions to a visual representation, which can make the concept more concrete and understandable. It emphasizes the use of number lines as a tool to visualize the distance between two fractions, thereby providing a clear understanding of what it means to subtract one fraction from another. By translating the visual cues into numerical subtraction sentences, students can enhance their ability to work with fractions in both visual and numerical formats. The self-assessment portion encourages students to reflect on their learning process and to self-monitor their progress.
