Fractions in this worksheet are
represented as circles divided into sectors. The task is to work out what
fraction of each circle has been shaded.
Each fraction on
this worksheet is shown using an arrow above a point on a straight
var _gaq = _gaq || ; _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-37388049-1']); _gaq.push(['_setDomainName', 'astarmathstutor.com']); _gaq.push(['_setAllowLinker', true]); _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']);
The task here is to work out what fraction of each oblong has been shaded.
29 circles need to be shaded in order to
represent given fractions.
This worksheet shows 20 partially shaded polygons. The task is to work out what fraction of each polygon has been shaded.
This can be used as a
fast paced warm up game. Fractions are represented by 35 partially shaded
circles and are arranged on a coordinates grid. Percentage or decimal
related questions might also be asked.
24 illustrations (pies and slices) provide a visual representation of improper fractions. As an extra activity, learners can also give their answers as mixed fractions (also known as mixed numbers).
Mixed fractions are illustrated here as points on a line. Answers may also be given as improper fractions.
This worksheet gives learners practice in finding fractions of whole number quantities represented by blocks of squares. This may also provide an opportunity to explore and discuss equivalent fractions.
The task here is to find fractions of small numbers represented by groups of shapes. Learners can then simplify the answers as far as possible.
On this worksheet, learners shade in circles or blocks to visually illustrate equivalent fractions.
This worksheet is designed to help learners reinforce their concept of equivalent fractions by dividing sectors of partially shaded circles.
This worksheet is like the one above, but this time the task is to divide rectangles.
This worksheet allows learners to demonstrate their understanding of equivalent fractions by shading in a range of shapes.
The following 3 worksheets use lines to demonstrate the idea of fractions of whole number quantities:
12 linear scales aimed at those familiar with the 2, 5 and 10
12 linear scales aimed at those familiar with the 3, 4 and 6
12 linear scales aimed at those familiar with the 7, 8 and 9
These worksheets use dials to show fractions of whole number quantities:
20 dials, each with 8 intervals
20 dials, each with 10 intervals
20 dials, each with 12 intervals
30 questions e.g. 1/2 x 10.
30 questions e.g. 4/5 x 55.
Cut up along the DOTTED lines only.
You should now have 32 rectangles (16 from each sheet).
The rectangles are given out so each player has at least one each.
Encourage the players to look at the number on the left of their rectangles and consider what questions might give their number.
Any player can start by reading aloud the ‘question part’ on the right of their rectangle.
If another player has the answer on their card they call it out, and then ask their question.
This continues until the loop ends when the player who asked the first question gives the answer to the very last question.
It’s worth printing out two extra sheets just so you can keep track!
For smaller groups some players may be given 2 or more rectangles, or if you prefer the loop itself may be shortened with a little cutting and sticking.
30 fractions (e.g. 5/15) need to be written in their simplest form
30 more fractions (e.g. 81/90) need to be written in their simplest form
20 questions e.g. 4/5 + 3/5
The following 2 worksheets allow learners to practice adding fractions with different denominators:
20 questions e.g. 1/8 + 1/4
20 questions e.g. 1/3 + 1/12
Here are 20 questions involving mixed fractions with different denominators e.g. 2 11/12 + 2/3
These worksheets give learners practice subtracting fractions with different denominators:
20 questions e.g. 3/4 – 1/2
20 questions e.g. 5/12 – 1/6
20 questions e.g. 1/2 x 5/6.
Hopefully this mnemonic will come in handy when demonstrating the algorithm…
“A fraction divided by a fraction? Turn right around to multiplication!”
20 questions e.g. 1/4 ÷ 1/10.
This worksheet has 2 sections. The first tests learners’ ability to change fractions into decimals. The second section allows learners to show that they can change decimals into fractions.
**Note: There are many different
ways to correctly shade in the shapes.
These are not the only “answers”.
