# Maths resource of the week 15

To access all the Resources of the Week from this year, and the archived collection from last year, just click on the links at the bottom of the page. And if you've spotted a resource that you feel not enough people know about, then just drop me an email.

Adding Fractions isn't exactly a topic that gets the juices of excitement flowing in most students. There is also the danger that having taught the topic you will find yourself with a class of students in which half understand the method and are ready to move on to a tougher challenge, whereas half need some extra consolidation. This lovely little resource might just do the trick for the former group of students. Set them the challenge of filling in the blank squares by adding up the four surrounding fractions. Once they have mastered this, can they extend the problem by creating a challenge for their fellow students? Which denominators make like the most difficult? Which make it easiest? How about we add in some mixed numbers? What about some extra operations? This resource has a lot of potential.
