              Adding and Subtracting Algebraic Fractions

              The key idea with adding and subtracting algebraic fractions is to create common denominators.  As learning progresses students use algebraic techniques such as simplifying products and expanding brackets to evaluate the fractions.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to add and subtract a pair of algebraic fractions with numerical denominators.
              • Most students should be able to add and subtract a pair of algebraic fractions with a single unknown as the denominator.
              • Some students should be able to add and subtract a pair of algebraic fractions with an algebraic expressions as the denominator.
