To add and subtract fractions with denominators which are multiples

To add and subtract fractions with different denominators
This lesson is similar to yesterdays, where you are adding and subtracting fractions which have denominators which are multiples of each other. Refer back to yesterday's Mymaths lesson if you need to. There are two sheets: one is adding and the other subtracting.
In maths today, click on the link and it should take you to a mymaths investigation about frogs moving on lily pads. There are instructions so follow them carefully. To make it easier, start off with just 2 frogs on either end of the lily pads (you'll need to go to page 3 on mymaths and adjust it yourself. You can gradually build up the number of frogs at each end to make it more difficult. If you want to take it further here are some questions to think about:
Can you see any patterns in the sequence of moves that it takes to swap the frogs over?
Can you explain why those patterns occur?
