Previously, students organized and analyzed measurement data on a line plot. They also learned to express equivalent fractions (for example, they expressed 3 fourths as 6 eighths). In this lesson, they continue to use these skills, along with their knowledge of addition and subtraction of fractions with the same denominator, to solve problems involving fractional measurements.
- Use information on line plots to solve problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions and mixed numbers.
