Here is an activity that I use with students who have learned how to work with fractions, but need practice. I allow them to use any strategy they need to in order to compare, add, and subtract two fractions.
Students receive the half sheet shown above and find equivalent fractions with like denominators. Next, they show which fraction is greater, then add, and then subtract the two fractions. The finished paper would look something like the figure shown below.
