Students need lots of practice in computing fractions and mixed numbers in word problem format. They also need to work on comparing fractions and decimals. That’s why I created this set of fraction, decimal, and mixed number word problem task cards in PDF and digital form. I used these digital activities for differentiated instruction with my fifth grade virtual class during distance learning. I created the PDF task cards so that you could have more flexibility in using this product.

These cards come in sets of four or five problems, so they are not too overwhelming. You could have students complete the two digital sets independently—in centers or for homework. Each digital activity has five questions each.

The four sets of PDF task cards—16 total--are leveled. There is an easier fractions and mixed numbers set and a more challenging one. The decimal comparison cards are set up the same way. These could be assigned as an independent center or you could use these for small group instruction.

Once you download the file, you will automatically have access to your PDF task cards. Simply print, cut, and laminate! There are answer cards for each set of four with space for students to show their work. A printable key is included for all sets.

The links to your two digital activities are included in this file as well. Here’s how to access them:

1. Make sure you have a Google™ Account.

2. Click the links in the file you’ve just downloaded.

3. Sign into your Google™ account if you’re prompted.

4. Click the “make a copy” button.

5. Make sure to save the copy to your Google™ Drive

6. Assign your students their own copies so they

won’t alter your original.

Thank you so much for visiting my store and for considering this product. Happy teaching!

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators, e.g., by creating common denominators or numerators, or by comparing to a benchmark fraction such as 1/2. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
Understand addition and subtraction of fractions as joining and separating parts referring to the same whole.
Add and subtract mixed numbers with like denominators, e.g., by replacing each mixed number with an equivalent fraction, and/or by using properties of operations and the relationship between addition and subtraction.
Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions referring to the same whole and having like denominators, e.g., by using visual fraction models and equations to represent the problem.
Add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators (including mixed numbers) by replacing given fractions with equivalent fractions in such a way as to produce an equivalent sum or difference of fractions with like denominators. For example, 2/3 + 5/4 = 8/12 + 15/12 = 23/12. (In general, 𝘢/𝘣 + 𝘤/𝘥 = (𝘢𝘥 + 𝘣𝘤)/𝘣𝘥.)
