    Name: Butterfly Method Target Area: Adding and Subtracting Fractions Description: This is an algorithm for teaching addition and subtraction of fractions with unlike denominators. Rather than finding the least common denominator, students will just find a common denominator and need to simplify at the end. For students who struggle to understand the process of adding fractions, this is a good option.
