In this fraction worksheet, students complete a total of 36 problems, reducing answers to lowest terms. Answers follow both worksheets, 18 problems each.
For this fractions worksheet, students solve multiplication problems with fractions. Students complete eighteen problems multiplying fractions. There is an answer sheet included.
Multiply two mixed fractions. First, change them to improper fractions. Now, multiply the numerator times the numerator and the denominator times the denominator. Oh, that's a big number. Reduce it. Now, change it back into a mixed number. Done. Still confused? Follow along as the instructor illustrates the steps to this problem.
Third and fourth graders examine how to obtain equal fractions through the use of fraction strips and playing a fraction matching game. They observe a teacher-led demonstration and complete a fraction strip activity, complete examples, and play the fraction matching game in which they match fraction bars that have equal amounts of shading.
Middle schoolers identify proper, improper fractions, and mixed numbers.  They reduce fractions to their lowest terms. They add and subtract fractions with different denominators, and multiply and divide fractions, as well as decimal numbers and percents. This seven-page worksheet contains 28 problems with examples and detailed instructions.   
Upper elementary and middle schoolers solve 16 types of problems to include writing fractions to represent shaded portions, writing a mixed number to represent certain points on a number line, and changing equivalent mixed numbers to lowest terms. They also determine each fraction equations as products or quotients. Finally, pupils simplify a number of fraction equations and determine the reciprocal when necessary.
Young mathematicians have an understanding of dividing unit fractions by whole numbers and dividing whole numbers by unit fractions. The next step, which this lesson addresses, is to help them understand how to divide a fraction by a fraction. Through a variety of activities you explore real-world problems, the relationship between multiplication and division, and the discovery of an algorithm for fraction division. The introduction of vocabulary such as, reciprocal, multiplicative inverse, and multiplicative identity is introduced. 
A demonstration of how to multiply a whole number times a fraction.
Provide this video as additional instruction on how to solve inequalities when you need to multiply positive fractions. The focus of this video is on how to use the multiplication property of inequalities correctly. The lecturer explains each step as she goes through an example problem. Definitely a decent resource.
How tall is tall? Well, here's a word problem that when the solution is found will show how tall, tall is. Two years ago, Brad was five and a half feet tall, which was only 2/3 of how tall he is now. Oh my, he is going to be really tall. Word problems and fractions, everyone's favorite. Follow along as the teacher helps you navigate this word problem.
Review how to multiply fractions in this quick video that outlines three simple steps. The video gives two examples that follow the steps. Note: There is no audio in this video.
Upper elementary schoolers investigate the concept of multiplying fractions with the help of a handout and a treat of brownies. They work on a worksheet for a short while and then progress to multiplying a chain of terms. Then the teacher reviews fractions using the brownies as visual aid and a treat.
Understanding the meaning of fractions is a challenge for many young learners. These two questions examine what happens when the numerator and denominator of a fraction are doubled. Consider allowing students to discuss their ideas in small groups before sharing their explanations with the whole class. A great supplement for a unit on multiplying fractions.
Pupils multiply fractions by other fractions by using cancellation. In this multiplication of fractions lesson plan, students complete problems with one and two digit numbers.
This is the first of three videos on partial fraction expansion.  Sal goes over an example that first needs to be divided so that is a proper fraction. He then continues to demonstrate fraction decomposition. At home or in class, this offers a nice review of a real-life math scenario. 
Partial fraction expansion continues to be explored in this video. The example problem shown here is of higher degree polynomial then the one explored in the first Khan Academy video on this subject.
In the last video on partial fraction decomposition, Sal shows how to solve a fraction with a repeated factor in the denominator. He runs through this interesting problem and gives some insight into how to solve these types of problems, in general.
After watching a PowerPoint on fractions, young mathematicians study how and when they should multiply a fraction by a whole number. They go to the computer lab armed with a pair of dice, and a set of fraction cards. Here, they create problems on their own, and put them in their own personal math spreadsheet. The program gives them feedback as to whether they are right or wrong with their answers.
Who doesn't like to eat? Use food to explore the concept of fractions and how to multiply and divide fractions. In small groups they plan a sugar potluck that involves converting a recipe to produce enough dessert treats to feed the entire class. Math learners calculate the amount of ingredients for the entire project and for each individual recipe, make their recipe, and share it with the class.
For these calculating and converting fractions and percentages worksheets, learners add and subtract fractions, solve word problems, and convert fractions to percentages and percentages to fractions. They solve 85 problems.
