In this 6th grade math video lesson, your child will ** learn to add fractions with unlike denominators**, meaning that the denominators will not be the same when they begin. The video starts out with two simple fractions set up into an equation. The instructor then easily shows your child how to find a common denominator for each fraction and how to place it in the correct spot. Afterwards, she shows the student how to solve each problem with common denominators, from unlike denominators, and finishes with the equation in simplest terms. This video is recommended for students who are in 6

^{th}grade or higher.
