This resource includes 25 fraction word problems perfect for use in interactive notebooks. The word problems are aligned with 5th grade math standards and include adding and subtracting fractions and mixed numbers, multiplying fractions, and dividing with whole numbers and unit fractions.
Word problems are huge in Common Core and students need to be prepared to not only solve them, but to show and prove their thinking. I created this resource to help my students meet this requirement.
Depending on the size of the notebook, you may have to print the pages at 80% to have them fit on the page. I printed at 80% to fit them in a spiral notebook.
The students write the solution on the word problem paper and then show their work, explain the steps they took or prove their answer underneath the word problem on their notebook paper.
