Looking for more easy way to simplify? Try free online simplifying fraction calculator and check your answers.
One of the biggest problems is that there are so many different concepts and equations in algebra and in order to be successful you have to understand the entirety of it or you will not be able to figure out which procedure to use. You learned the order of operations years ago and that is one key tool for algebra. This tool allows you to understand which process happens first and so on. PEMDAS is a very valuable tool.
A way to address this is to learn how to compare fractions and find common denominators so that two fractions can be numerically compared clearly. The worksheets on this page provide exercises to do exactly that, and they are good practice for the steps necessary for other fraction operations.
Another variation is to ask the child to draw. First make some sticks, circles, squares, or other shapes on a page, and encircle them. Make for the child a big "bubble" to draw in, and ask the child to draw either the same amount, one more, or one less. Also have your child practice writing numbers on paper.
