## Session 1.6 - Combinations That Equal 1

## Learning Goals -

1. I can use representations to add fractions that sum to 1.

2. I can add fractions with the same and related denominators (e.g., halves, fourths, and eighths; thirds and sixths)

2. I can add fractions with the same and related denominators (e.g., halves, fourths, and eighths; thirds and sixths)

## Introduction to Adding Fractions

1/2 + 2/6 = 5/6

Is this equations true? Show how you know.

Is this equations true? Show how you know.

1/2 + 2/6 + 1/2 =

What if we add another 1/2?

Now what is the sum?

What if we add another 1/2?

Now what is the sum?

How can you show 1/2 + 2/6 + 1/2 on these 4 X 6 rectangles? What if we thought about boxes like those you see in the supermarket with 24 apples in each box? What would 1/2 + 2/6 + 1/2 of boxes of apples look like?

## Fractions/Adding Fractions

Use what you know about fractions to make representations (models or pictures) of how to show the fractions related to a whole.
