These worksheets guide students through the strategy of finding the GCF of a fraction’s numerator and denominator in order to simplify or reduce the fraction. I’ve broken it down into a step-by-step guide that has helped my RSP/Special Education students in 4th, 5th and 6th grade find success with this often frustrating process.
I’ve included a worked-out/answer key version along with the blank
reproducibles. You can extend this practice with any other fraction worksheet or problem set.
