Amazing New Fraction Worksheets Just in Time for Back to School!
I hope all of you have had a great summer! If you're just returning to your math drills for the school year, I hope you'll notice a big change around here at DadsWorksheets! I've been busy updating our worksheets starting with switching to PDF files, and a great deal of effort wehnt into giving them a more modern look and feel...
I'm especially pleased with the fraction worksheets... Not only do the new worksheets look amazing, but the answer keys show work with more clarity, adding a few extra steps to the computations to make some of the problems a little easier to understand. You'll especially appreciate this when working with the multiplying fractions or dividing fractions worksheets, where solving those types of problems can have many steps.
As always, these worksheets show you how to cross-multiply fractions where necessary to get the answer. Cross multiplication is difficult to explain, but having fraction problems that illustrate the steps in the key can be a huge help for kids trying to see where their computations went wrong (or, if you're an adult, I can tell you from experience they also come in handy more than you might think!)
If you're starting 3rd, 4th or 5th grade, now's the time to start learning fraction concepts and these worksheets are a great place to start... I hope you'll print a few out and let me know what you think in the comments section below!
And if you find yourself doing (or explaining) lots of fractions problems, be sure to check out my visual fraction calculator...
It's another great tool for explaining fraction problems and seeing how to solve them!
