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 make the worksheets in both html and PDF formats. 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.
Basic instructions for the worksheets
Each worksheet is randomly generated and thus unique. The answer key is automatically generated and is placed on the second page of the file.
You can generate the worksheets either in html or PDF format — both are easy to print. To get the PDF worksheet, simply push the button titled "Create PDF" or "Make PDF worksheet". To get the worksheet in html format, push the button "View in browser" or "Make html worksheet". This has the advantage that you can save the worksheet directly from your browser (choose File → Save) and then edit it in Word or other word processing program.
Sometimes the generated worksheet is not exactly what you want. Just try again! To get a different worksheet using the same options:
- PDF format: come back to this page and push the button again.
- Html format: simply refresh the worksheet page in your browser window.
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!
