## Adding Fractions with the Area Model

Directions:

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