IXL's Fraction Word Problems

In the fifth grade section of this website, your child can view and answer fraction division word problems one at a time here. The problems are corrected automatically, so you don't have to worry about reading an answer sheet and correcting your child's work manually. After answering each problem, your son or daughter can choose to press 'submit' or 'submit and finish.' The 'submit' key will produce a new question. This means the math practice session can go on as long as your child is willing to keep going.

Worksheet Generator from Math Teacher's Assistant

Here, you can create worksheets dealing with fraction and division word problems. Each time you create a worksheet, new problems will appear, which makes it possible to create endless worksheets for your child to practice with.

Begin creating a worksheet by choosing the operation and the numbers that will be included. The worksheets are printable and come with answers. In addition, there is a timed test for dividing fractions. The questions are not in word problems, but this feature could provide the extra practice your child needs.
