This resource has 8 different worksheets, with answers, covering all different areas of fractions, including changing fractions from improper to proper fractions, and multiplying and dividing fractions.
Powerpoint and worksheet comprising a whole lesson showing how to simplify fractions by dividing the numerator and denominator with common factors. Uses diagrams to show how the two fractions are equivalent.
Understand what is meant by simplest form.
Practise using multiplication facts in reverse. Dividing numbers less than 100 mentally.

This bundle includes everything you need to teach fractions. Each resource follows a concrete – pictorial – abstract approach for mastery and includes opportunities to use number lines, bar models and concrete materials. It also includes varied fluency, reasoning and problem-solving questions. Differentiated two ways and includes answers.
• What is a fraction?
• Equivalent fractions (1)
• Equivalent fractions (2)
• Fractions greater than 1
• Count in fractions
• Add 2 or more fractions
• Subtract 2 fractions
• Subtract from whole amounts
• Calculate fractions of a quantity
• Problem solving – calculate quantities
National Curriculum Links
• Recognise and show, using diagrams, families of common equivalent fractions.
• Count up and down in hundredths; recognise that hundredths arise when dividing an object by one hundred and dividing tenths by ten.
• Solve problems involving increasingly harder fractions to calculate quantities, and fractions to divide quantities, including non-unit fractions where the answer is a whole number.
• Add and subtract fractions with the same denominator.

Suitable for both Key stage 3 and 4. This worksheet is designed to help pupils revise fractions of amounts. The worksheet is fully differentiated (mild, medium spicy and hot) allowing pupils to work at different levels simultaneously. The worksheet also features a section for pupils to self-assess their understanding and set a target for next lesson,
A complete lesson for first teaching how to add and subtract fractions with different denominators. Does include some examples and questions involving simplifying at the end, but doesn’t include adding or subtracting mixed numbers.
Some quick questions to test if pupils can find equivalent fractions and identify the lowest common multiple of two numbers.
Some examples with diagrams to help pupils understand the need for common denominators when adding.
A recap/help sheet of equivalent fractions for pupils to reference while they try some simple additions and subtractions. At this stage, they aren’t expected to find LCMs ‘properly’, just to find them on the help sheet.
Some example question pairs on adding or subtracting by first identifying the lowest common denominator, starting with the scenario that the LCM is the product of the denominators, then the scenario that the LCM is one of the denominators, and finally the scenario that the LCM is something else (eg denominators of 4 and 6).
A set of straightforward questions with a progression in difficulty. The hardest ones require students to simplify the answer.
A challenging extension where pupils must find four digits to fit a given fraction sum.
A final example designed to challenge the misconception of adding numerators and denominators, and give a chance to reinforce the key method.
Worksheets and answers included.
Please review if you buy as any feedback is appreciated!
Delivered to a year 9 KS4 class but can be altered for each year or ability.
Introduces the students to the idea of fractions being hydrocarbons of similar length and propeties.
Visual aids help the students to understand how chain length and intermolecular forces affect properties of the fractions.
QR codes provided and link to youtube channels.
Student lead activity to explain how fractional distilation occurs (chance to make model answers).
Worksheet included for researching the fractions and their uses.
Plenary is exam style questions
Suitable for both Key stage 3 and 4. This worksheet is designed to help pupils revise dividing fractions. The worksheet is fully differentiated (mild, medium spicy, hot and challenge) allowing pupils to work at different levels simultaneously. The worksheet also features a section for pupils to self-assess their understanding and set a target for next lesson,
With this activity, students will practice multiplying fractions (proper and improper with some cross cancellation) as they color! Once they put their answers in simplest form, they color the part of the picture with their answer according to the indicated color to reveal a beautiful, colorful mandala. Not only is coloring a great way to motivate students, but the final products also make fabulous classroom decor! This activity is excellent for sub plans, enrichment, extra practice, early finishers, or just plain fun!

This is a set of 18 fraction word problems suitable for children in years 3, 4, 5 operating at greater depth and children in year 6 and year 7 operating between age related expectations and greater depth in the national curriculum. I've used it with my year 6 class and even the very brightest children were challenged by some of the questions. These questions are good ways to test if a child is operating at greater depth. As a free resource these worksheets had over 83,000 downloads. It has been updated with the answers corrected and included and is a 'ready-to-go' resource. There are now 3 complete sets uploaded on this website - all with 18 fraction word problems and the answers.
As the title suggests, this is a colouring sheet for finding fractions of amounts. Unlike other maths colouring sheets, each sheet only requires four different colours and therefore requires fewer teacher supplies. Students solve the answers to the questions and colour based on their solution. This then creates a pattern which looks great on a classroom wall. It also makes it very easy to tell which students understand and which need help as their answers are easy to see from a distance. Win-win as students are pleased to see their work displayed and the classroom looks brighter. :) The solution is the pattern displayed. Suitable for KS3 and KS4.

This bundle of resources covers 4 weeks of fractions for Year 4 during the Spring term. The resources aim to help children gain a deeper understanding of the concepts covered in the topic. Pack 1 recaps what a fraction is and looks at equivalent fractions. Pack 2 looks at fractions greater than 1 and adding/ subtracting fractions. Pack 3 covers counting in fractions and more on subtracting fractions. Pack 4 covers finding fractions of quantities and has an 'End of unit assessment'.
The resources have a good mix of fluency, reasoning and problem solving activities and promote the use of CPA (Concrete-Pictorial-Abstract) throughout.
I hope you find the resources useful.
This fraction, decimal and percentage matching puzzle is a fun way to test students ability convert between fractions, decimals and percentages. It contains 32 puzzles including all base fractions up to nine-tenths, and also includes a bonus ten-tenths to test understanding of a whole.
It is designed to be easily cut with little wastage. So either the teacher or tutor can prepare the cards by cutting them before hand, or students can cut their own cards, giving them a chance to see the solutions before they attempt the puzzle.
Although this product is made in colour, it prints perfectly well in black and white. Each puzzle is the size of an A4 sheet. To use less paper, select the pages per sheet option, and the puzzles will be smaller, but still high quality.
Available as part of Matching Activity Bundle One.
