Math practice from SuperTeacherWorksheets.com

A series of pre-made, printable math worksheets are offered here. Your child can practice adding and subtracting fractions with the same or different denominators. Each link to a worksheet has a short written description under it telling you more details about the problems. All the worksheets come with answer keys.

While these problems can be very useful for drilling fractions and working on speed and accuracy, the answers do not come with explanations. If your child needs help understanding the technique of adding or subtracting fractions, these resources may not be the most appropriate. Once your child grasps how it is done, these worksheets can serve as effective review materials.

Math-Drills' Worksheets

Here, there are dozens of printable fractions worksheets. Along with adding and subtracting, your child can practice reducing, converting, multiplying and dividing fractions. All of these worksheets come with answers and are designed to be printed. Find a worksheet that meets your child's needs by choosing from like or unlike denominators, mixed numbers, mixed fraction and improper fractions. The website is very well organized and should be no problem to navigate if you know what your child needs to work on.

Create Worksheets from HomeSchoolMath.net

This worksheet generator allows you to make practice pages for your child to review adding and subtracting fractions. Equivalent, comparing, multiplying and dividing fractions worksheets are also available. You can choose the type of operation, the number of rows and the minimum and maximum numbers for the numerators and denominators.

These worksheets all come with answers. A fraction calculator is also provided, so if your child is really stuck on a single problem he or she can find the answer. You'll have to monitor your child while he or she works on homework, however, to make sure the fraction calculator is not being used to get all the answers.
