Demonstrate Skills with Fraction Writing Prompts

Do you remember the feeling of dread that came with learning fractions in school? Well, fear no more! There are many ways to make working with fractions fun and beneficial for students. One particularly effective method is through constructed response activities that challenge students to use mathematical vocabulary to explain concepts. This approach to learning helps students develop a deeper understanding of fractions and improve their communication skills. The following fraction concepts are included in this editable resource.

  • Model and compare numerical and visual representations of fractions.
  • Compare numerical representations of fractions less than one whole.
  • Compare fractions using visual representations.
  • Compare mixed numbers in numerical form.
  • Comparing fractional portions of a group.
  • Adding fractions with the same denominator
  • Comparing fractions with different denominators
  • Reading and comparing decimal fractions.
  • Using academic language to describe and demonstrate concept mastery.

Solve Fraction Word Problems as Daily Review

This resource makes an excellent daily review problem for your maths students. Your resource download includes 24 fraction problems that require students to reason and explain their thinking behind a particular problem. Some examples include:

  • Which Fraction Doesn’t Belong? Students will view different fractions representations and explain which is different and why.
  • Who Has More? Students will view and compare two sets of fractions to determine which fraction or situation has a more significant portion.
  • And more!

We’ve also included a recording sheet and answer key for easier grading!
