Knowing whether to multiply or divide fractions in word problems can be tricky for students. This quick assessment/worksheet tests your students' knowledge of multiplying and dividing fractions. This resource includes a range of standard algorithm and word problems.
This assessment is aligned with the following common core standards:
Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication to multiply
a fraction or whole number by a fraction.
Interpret the product (a/b) × q as a parts of a partition of q into b equal parts; equivalently, as the result of a sequence of operations a × q ÷ b.
Solve real world problems involving multiplication of fractions and mixed numbers, e.g., by using equations to represent the problem.
Apply and extend previous understandings of division to divide unit fractions by whole numbers and whole numbers by unit fractions.1
Interpret division of a unit fraction by a non-zero whole number, and compute such quotients.
Interpret division of a whole number by a unit fraction, and compute such quotients.
Solve real world problems involving division of unit fractions by non-zero whole numbers and division of whole numbers by unit fractions, e.g., by using equations to represent the problem.
