A set of challenging fraction puzzles from the series Advanced Common Core Math. Students begin with the solution but have to add and/or subtract three fractions to get there. These puzzles have many right answers, will promote lots of discussion, and will help students recognize patterns within fractions.

  1. Students try to reach 0 by adding and/or subtracting three fractions using only the digits 1 through 6.
  2. Now, they try to reach 1 by adding and/or subtracting three fractions using only the digits 1 through 6.
  3. They try to get as close as possible to 1/2.
  4. Try to get as close as possible to 0.
  5. Try to get as close as possible to 1.
  6. One possible answer is revealed.
