This Power Point Show has 30 fraction word problems geared for fourth grade. Use as a warm up, guided math practice, or print as task cards for student use in a center or as independent work. Each slide contains one word problem with two proposed answers, one of which is correct and one incorrect, allowing students to practice error analysis and justify their answer.
Problems #1-5 are general fraction word problems, including decomposing fractions (4.NF.3b)
Problems #6-10 require students to compare fractions (4.NF.2)
Problems #11-16 involve equivalent fractions (4.NF.1)
Problems #17-21 ask students to add or subtract fractions with like denominators, including finding lowest terms (4.NF.3d)
Problems #22-30 involve finding the fraction of a set by multiplying a whole number by a fraction (4.NF.4c)
Download the preview for a sample of each type of problem.
Although these are designed to support fourth grade standards, they could be used for review in fifth grade, or for higher level third graders.
Please note that this PowerPoint show is best viewed on computer screens and Promethean/Smart Boards.
