  • Adding and Simplifying Fractions
  • The fractions in this printable math worksheet must be added then simplified, if necessary. Some children may incorrectly add both the numerators and the denominators; demonstrate that only the numerators should be added when the fractions have the same denominators.

  • Adding Mixed Fractions
  • Practice adding mixed numbers and simplifying fractions, with this printable math worksheet. Make sure students understand how to simplify improper fractions that are part of a mixed number as well.

  • Comparing Fractions
  • To practice comparing fractions, children circle the fraction with the greater value. If they have difficulty, you may want to model the fractions with a cut-up sheet of paper.

  • Converting Fractions and Decimals
  • Given fractions or decimals, students must convert one to the other. Remind children that 1⁄10 is equivalent to 0.1, 2⁄10 is equivalent to 0.2, and so on.

  • Finding Fractions
  • To find the answer to these problems, students multiply a whole number (or unit fraction) by a fraction.

  • Fractions
  • Students use picture clues to decide what fraction of the objects are shaded. If they have difficulty, point out that the numerator is the number of shaded parts and the denominator is the total number of parts.

  • Fractions of Shapes (1⁄2 or 1⁄3)
  • Children shade 1⁄2 or 1⁄3 of each shape in this worksheet to review fractions. Children may shade in any combination of the sections as long as the shaded area represents the fraction.

  • Fractions of Shapes (2⁄3 or 3⁄4)
  • To show the fraction listed, children shade in a part of the objects. Students may shade in any combination of the sections as long as the total shaded area represents the fraction.

  • Fractions of Shapes (Fifths and Tenths)
  • To review fractions, children shade in the shapes to represent each amount. Children may shade in any combination of the sections as long as the shaded area represents the fraction.

  • Parts of a Whole
  • Use shaded pictures to demonstrate fractions with this printable math worksheet. Remind students that the denominator is the total number of parts, and the numerator is the number of shaded parts.

  • Subtracting and Simplifying Fractions
  • In this math worksheet, children subtract fractions that have the same denominators. Remind them to simplify their answers, if required. Help them do so by finding common factors in the numerator and denominator.

  • Writing Fractions and Decimals
  • The focus of this printable math worksheet is to compare fractions and decimals. Students convert fractions to decimals and vice versa; use a number line if this exercise is too difficult for some children.
