Product Description

Hey teachers,

Do you need some high quality word problems that include fractions? Of course you do! These are challenging problems for students to grapple with. These story problems are a mix of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division with fractions.

This product has 12 fraction word problems spread over 2 front/back pages (or 4 pages front only).

These are the type of real-life word problems that students can work on together or independently. They can use multiple strategies and representations to work their way through these mathematical scenarios. I love providing fractions strips or tiles to reinforce the concrete side of fractions and connect to their abstract representations.

When I use these fraction problems...

  • I assign just one or two problems at a time.
  • I require students to solve each problem two ways (with a drawing and with an equation, with tiles and with a drawing, with multiplication and repeated addition, etc.).
  • After kids have had lots of time to work on a problem, I ask them to share how they solved it.
  • Listening/watching students are required to be ready to respond to the sharing student with a question, comment, or connection.
  • I ask students to look at their classmates' strategies and make connections between concrete, pictorial, and abstract ways of solving the problems.

These fraction word problems build problem solving skills, prepare students for end-of-grade testing, and give kids an opportunity to connect multiple strategies.

Happy Teaching!
