# Calculations with Fractions and Mixed Numbers # Calculations with Fractions and Mixed Numbers

Students apply their learning with fractions and mixed numbers to solve a wide range of calculations with fractions and mixed numbers.  Including: multiplication, division, addition and subtraction problems. This lesson links with the order of operations, perimeter, area and substitution into formulae.The start of the lesson is used to recap ordering fractions and mixed numbers with different denominators along a number line. At the end students are challenged solve a kinematics problem involving fractions.
##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to multiply and divide with mixed numbers and top-heavy fractions.
• Most students should be able to use the four operations, including formal written methods, applied to proper and improper fractions, and mixed numbers.
• Some students should be able to substitute mixed numbers and top-heavy fractions into a formula and evaluate the result.
