A worksheet to deepen students’ understanding of fractions.
Assign each student a fraction, or allow the students to choose their own. If you have access to a set of fraction dice, students can roll to get a starting fraction. This is written in the box at the top of the worksheet. Laminate or slide into a dry-erase pocket and use with a dry-erase marker for added longevity.
Students then complete a ‘fact file’ for their fraction. Activities include:
- identifying the numerator and denominator
- identifying an equivalent fraction and decimal
- decomposing the fraction in a variety of ways
- locating the fraction on a number line
- drawing a visual representation of the fraction
- writing a word problem about the fraction.

Common Core Curriculum alignment
Understand a fraction a/b with a > 1 as a sum of fractions 1/b.
Understand addition and subtraction of fractions as joining and separating parts referring to the same whole.
Decompose a fraction into a sum of fractions with the same denominator in more than one way, recording each decomposition by an equation. Justify decompositions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model. Examples: 3/8 = 1/8 + 1/8 + 1/8 ; 3/8 = 1/8 + 2/...
Use decimal notation for fractions with denominators 10 or 100. For example, rewrite 0.62 as 62/100; describe a length as 0.62 meters; locate 0.62 on a number line diagram.
