              Subtracting Fractions using a Fraction Wall

              Students learn how to subtract fractions with using equivalent fraction diagrams.  As learning progresses more able students are taught written methods.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to calculate the difference between two fractions with the same denominator.
              • Most students should be able to use visual methods to find the difference between two fractions.
              • Some students should be able to use written methods to find the difference between fractions and mixed numbers.
