A worksheet to deepen students’ understanding of fractions.
Use this teaching resource to help consolidate your 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. Print this resource on cardstock and slide into a dry-erase pocket. Then, 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
- locating the fraction on a number line
- drawing a visual representation of the fraction
- writing a word problem that has the fraction as the answer.
We also have a version of this resource that replaces the decomposition of the fraction with identifying an equivalent percent. Simply use the drop-down menu and select ‘PDF that includes percent’.

Explain why a fraction a/b is equivalent to a fraction (n × a)/(n × b) by using visual fraction models, with attention to how the number and size of the parts differ even though the two fractions themselves are the same size. Use this principle to ...
Understand a fraction a/b with a > 1 as a sum of fractions 1/b.
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.
