This tutorial helps students understand the basic concept of subtracting fractions. Each problem is illustrated with pizza slices and the steps for finding the least common denominator are clear. There is also a video in which students can watch a problem being solved on paper. There are also links to further information about finding the common denominator using two methods (either by multiplying the denominators or finding the least common denominator). At the end, there is a link to fractions worksheets for students to practice their new skills, and links to two questions for students to solve and answer. Less
