Friends Who Run is a fraction addition problem designed for fifth grade. Students are given two people whose runs in a day are represented as fractions and are asked to mark distances on a number line, find the total number of miles run per person, and determine the difference between the two distances. Argumentation language is used, as well as scaffolding, to invoke the use of a claim and evidence in the critiquing the problem.
