Fractions are one of the more challenging math subjects introduced in 3rd or 4th grade, but often students will not master fraction arithmetic until they are nearly ready for middle school. The collection of fractions worksheets on this page start with basic skills such as identifying fractions and converting between equivalent fractions, and then progress through the four basic arithmetic operations. Each section starts with the least complex version of the problems I could devise before introducing more difficult subjects such as improper fractions, mixed numbers, reducing and finding common denominators. There are special sets of worksheets that focus on adding and subtracting fractions with unlike denominators, as well as converting common fractional amounts between their fraction, decimal and percent form.
I'm especially proud of some of these worksheets and they include some of the most detailed and instructive answer keys you're likely to find on fraction worksheets anywhere. When problems need different denominators or require steps like cross cancelling, you'll find those steps broken out in the answer keys. That makes these printable fraction worksheets an incredible practice resource for students to self-check their work.
A great introduction to identifying fractions using pie graphics as models. Students are asked to identify numeric forms of fractions from the graphics, or to draw their own model representations. These are the perfect worksheets to introduce fractions as early as 2nd grade or 3rd grade.Graphic Fractions
These equivalent fractions worksheets teach 4th and 5th grade students how to find equivalent fractions, including both reducing fractions to lower forms as well as changing fractions to less reduced forms. By building familiarity with common equivalent fractions, students learn how to find and recognize the fractions they need when performing other types of fraction arithmetic where different denominators are required.Equivalent Fractions Worksheets
