In this assessment, students will explore patterns in relation to the addition and subtraction of unit fractions. In Part A, students write down their understanding of unit fractions before considering a pattern for the addition of unit fractions. Then, in Part B, students carry out an unguided investigation in order to find patterns when a unit fraction is subtracted from another unit fraction.
