Adding Fractions using Manipulatives – Part 1

Fractions are one of the most challenging topics in math, but they are also critical for students to understand to be successful in algebra. One way to help students understand fractions and feel comfortable adding them is by using manipulatives. Sarah Powell from UT shows how you can use area model manipulatives to teach students how to add fractions that have like denominators.
