Fraction worksheets 1
Fraction addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division
This worksheet generator produces a variety of worksheets for the four basic operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division) with fractions and mixed numbers, including with negative fractions. You can choose like or unlike fractions, make missing number problems, restrict the problems to use proper fractions or to not to simplify the answers. Further, you can control the values of numerator, denominator, and the whole-number part to make the fractions or mixed numbers as easy or difficult as you like.
To control the amount of working space, change the font size, cellpadding, and extra space below each problem. To use negative fractions or mixed numbers, change the range for the numerator and/or whole number to include negative numbers; you do not need to set the denominator to negatives. Click here for more instructions on this worksheet generator.
The worksheets come with an answer key; however, you need to click to the answer key page immediately after generating a worksheet, because the answer key also is generated 'on the fly', and won't exist later on, should you come looking for it later.
Tip: chose value 1 to be a fraction and value 2 to be a mixed number, and then tick the box of "Value 1 - Value 2 random switching" to make problems where either the first or the second number is a mixed number. Just experiment with the options to customize the worksheets as you like!
