5th Grade Long Division Worksheets

Students typically learn long division in the 4th and 5th grades. Fifth grade long division includes 2-digit divisors and both whole and fractional dividends. Additionally, 5th graders often have to convert remainders into fractions or decimals. Many websites offer free long division worksheets that you can print out and give your child for extra practice.

Worksheet Database at MathIsFun.com

Math Is Fun has thousands of long division worksheets. The worksheets are divided into categories based on difficulty and whether or not the answers have remainders. The worksheets can help your 5th grader by showing him or her how many steps are needed to solve a problem (indicated by the number of lines below the dividend on the worksheet).

Although the website doesn't specifically state which grade level the worksheets are appropriate for, you can check your child's textbook to identify the types of problems the class is working on, and then select the corresponding worksheets. Answers don't come with textual explanations, so these exercises may be more helpful once your son or daughter has moved beyond the beginning stages of learning long division.

Create Your Own Worksheets at the Math Worksheet Site

The online worksheet generator at the Math Worksheet Site lets you tailor the level of difficulty to your 5th grader's abilities. You may select the number of digits in the divisors (numbers that you're dividing the dividends by) and quotients (answers with or without remainders) for each worksheet. Answers are written numerically and written explanations aren't given.

Free Long Division Worksheets from HomeSchoolMath.net

Home School Math offers materials for various 5th grade math topics, from long division to dividing by fractions and decimals. Long division worksheets are categorized in a few ways. For example, you may choose the number of digits that will be divided (dividends) and how many digits will be in the remainder.

One possible drawback of this site is that the answer doesn't show how you arrive at the quotient. If your long division skills are lacking, and your child needs thorough explanations, the free section of this site may not be the best choice for you. However, you can purchase teaching kits from Home School Math, which include detailed lessons with both textual explanations and video demonstrations at a white board.
