This lesson focuses on the conceptual understanding aspect of 5.NF.A.2--using visual fraction models to add two fractions with unlike denominators.  Building this conceptual understanding of using equivalence to add unlike denominators is an important precursor to using addition or subtraction to solve word problems with these types of fractions.  This lesson includes strong examples of indicators from all three Core Actions.
