Adding Fractions with the Area Model


  1. Use the sliders at the bottom to build the problem.
  2. Slide point A onto point B to see how to rename the fractions with a common denominator (not necessarily the lowest common denominator).
  3. Once you think you understand how to add fractions, try it on paper first, and then check your answer with the applet.
