Students learn how to perform addition and subtraction with fractions and mixed numbers. As learning progresses students link fractions with perimeter and distances. More able students are challenged to add and subtract simple algebraic fractions and mixed numbers.

The start of the lesson recaps adding fractions with different denominators. The plenary challenges students to calculate the mid-point of a line where the ends are given as mixed numbers.
