In a future time, when AI robots have taken over running pizzerias on a planet orbiting Alpha Centauri, the robot Zigon takes orders and then adds and subtracts fractions before the Pizzamatic-5000 serves up large pepperoni and cheese pizzas for its alien visitors! Adding Fractions has never been so stellar or astral.
Video aligns with the following Common Core Math Standards
4.NF.A.1 ✦ 4.NF.1 Explain why a fraction a/b is equivalent to a fraction (n×a)/(n×b) by using visual fraction models, with attention to how the number and size of the parts differ even though the two fractions themselves are the same size. Use this principle to recognize and generate equivalent fractions.
4.NF.B.3 A ✦ 4.NF.3 A Understand addition and subtraction of fractions as joining and separating parts referring to the same whole.
4.NF.B.3 D ✦ 4.NF.3 D Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions referring to the same whole and having like denominators, e.g., by using visual fraction models and equations to represent the problem.
5.NF.A.1 ✦ 5.NF.1 Add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators (including mixed numbers) by replacing given fractions with equivalent fractions in such a way as to produce an equivalent sum or difference of fractions with like denominators. For example, 2/3 + 5/4 = 8/12 + 15/12 = 23/12. (In general, a/b + c/d = (ad + bc)/bd.)
5.NF.A.2 ✦ 5.NF.2 Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions referring to the same whole, including cases of unlike denominators, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem. Use benchmark fractions and number sense of fractions to estimate mentally and assess the reasonableness of answers. For example, recognize an incorrect result 2/5 + 1/2 = 3/7, by observing that 3/7 < 1/2.
Adding Fractions Video aligns with the following Math TEKS standards
