Unlock the Problem

Ms. Clark made a loaf of bread. She used $$\frac{1}{8}$$ of the bread for a snack arid $$\frac{5}{8}$$ of the bread for lunch. How much bread did she use for a snack and lunch?

One Way Use a picture.

$$\frac{1}{8}$$ is ___________ eighth-size piece of bread.
$$\frac{1}{8}$$ is ___________ eighth-size pieces of bread. So, Ms. Clark used _________ eighth-size
pieces, or $$\frac{}{8}$$ of the bread.
$$\frac{1}{8}$$ is 1 by eighth-size piece of bread.
$$\frac{5}{8}$$ is 5 by  eighth-size pieces of bread. So, Ms. Clark used 6 by eighth-size
pieces, or $$\frac{6}{8}$$ of the bread.

Another Way Use fraction strips.

The 1 strip represents the whole loaf.
Each $$\frac{1}{8}$$ part represents 1 eighth-size piece of bread.
Shade $$\frac{1}{8}$$. Then shade $$\frac{5}{8}$$. How many $$\frac{1}{8}$$-size parts are shaded? _____________
Write the sum. $$\frac{1}{8}+\frac{5}{8}$$ = $$\frac{}{8}$$
So, Ms. Clark __________ used of the bread.
How many $$\frac{1}{8}$$-size parts are shaded? $$\frac{6}{8}$$ parts are shaded
Write the sum. $$\frac{1}{8}+\frac{5}{8}$$ = $$\frac{6}{8}$$
So, Ms. Clark $$\frac{6}{8}$$ used of the bread.

Mathematical Processes
Explain why $$\frac{1}{8}+\frac{5}{8}$$ ≠ $$\frac{6}{16}$$
Answer: Because the denominators are different
Explanation:
As the denominators are different
That means the number of parts divided are different.

Make Connections

Question 1.
Explain how the numerator of the sum is related to the fraction strip model.
Numerator shows How many parts are completed are how many parts to be completed in the fraction strip model
If the denominators are unlike the numerators cannot be added directly

Question 2.
Explain how the denominator of the sum is related to the fraction strip model.
The denominator shows how many parts are there in total
If the denominators are same we can directly add the numerator.

Example
Jacob needs two strips of wood to make masts for a miniature sailboat. One mast will be $$\frac{3}{6}$$ foot long. The other mast will be $$\frac{2}{6}$$ foot long. He has a strip of wood that is $$\frac{4}{6}$$ foot long. Is this strip of wood long enough to make both masts?
Explanation: $$\frac{3}{6}+\frac{2}{6}$$ = $$\frac{5}{6}$$
$$\frac{4}{6}$$ < $$\frac{5}{6}$$
so, strip of wood long not enough to make both masts

Shade the model to show $$\frac{3}{6}+\frac{2}{6}$$ Write the sum. $$\frac{3}{6}+\frac{2}{6}$$ = $$\frac{}{6}$$
Is the sum less than or greater than $$\frac{4}{6}$$? _____________
So, the strip of wood ______________ long enough to make both masts. $$\frac{3}{6}+\frac{2}{6}$$ = $$\frac{5}{6}$$
Is the sum less than or greater than $$\frac{4}{6}$$? Greater than $$\frac{4}{6}$$
So, the strip of wood not long enough to make both masts.

Question 3.
Explain how you used the number line to determine if the sum was less than $$\frac{4}{6}$$.
Answer: $$\frac{4}{6}$$ < $$\frac{5}{6}$$.
Explanation:
The sum was not less than $$\frac{4}{6}$$.
It is greater than $$\frac{4}{6}$$.

Question 4.
What if each mast was $$\frac{4}{6}$$ foot long? Could Jacob use the strip of wood to make both masts? Explain.
The wood will not be suffitient.

Question 1.
Gary’s cat ate $$\frac{3}{5}$$ of a hag of cat treats in September and $$\frac{1}{5}$$ of the same bag of cat treats in October. What part of the bag of cat treats did Gary’s cat eat in both months?
Use the model to find the sum $$\frac{3}{5}+\frac{1}{5}$$.

Explanation:
With the help of fraction strip model we can see that
