Add and subtract fractions within 1 with the same units.

Since it is possible to overemphasize the importance of simplifying fractions, the corresponding criteria for success and questions in the Anchor Tasks are optional. If you want the focus for today to solely be on adding and subtracting fractions within 1, you may decide to cut this aspect of the lesson, but be sure to touch on the idea at some point in the unit.
If you need to adapt or shorten this lesson for remote learning, we suggest prioritizing Anchor Tasks 2-4 (benefit from worked examples). You could consolidate these as one Anchor Task using Anchor Task 2 Part (a), Anchor Task 3 Part (b), and all of Anchor Task 4.
