Adding Fractions:

Same Denominator

Adding fractions with the same denominators, No simplifying (All answers already in lowest terms), All vertical problems. (example: 4/6 + 1/6 = 5/6)

Adding Fractions 2 MemberWorksheet for adding fractions with denominators that are the same; Requires simplifying; Vertical problems. (example: 1/6 + 2/6 = 3/6)

Adding Fractions 3 MemberWorksheet for adding fractions with the same denominators, Horizontal and vertical problems. (example: 2/6 + 3/6 = 5/6)

Adding Fractions 4 MemberAnother worksheet for adding fractions with like denominators, All horizontal problems. (example: 3/8 + 2/8 = 5/8)

Adding Fractions 5 MemberAnswers greater than 1, Requires converting from improper fractions to mixed number, All horizontal problems. (example: 5/8 + 4/8 = 1 1/8)

Adding Fractions:

Different Denominators

Worksheet for adding fractions with denominators that are different; Only one addend needs to be changed; Vertical problems; Requires simplifying. (example: 1/3 + 1/6 = 1/2)

Adding Fractions Worksheet (Unlike Denominators) 2 MemberAnother worksheet for adding fractions with denominators that are different. (example: 1/4 + 1/2 = 3/4) Vertical problems.

Adding Fractions (Unlike Denominators) ADVANCED MemberAdding fractions with two unlike denominators, Requires simplifying, Vertical problems, Advanced level

Adding Mixed Numbers:

Same Denominators

Add the mixed numbers with like denominators; Vertical problems; Requires simplifying

Adding Mixed Numbers 2 MemberA dozen mixed number addition problems. Denominators are the same.

Adding Mixed Numbers:

Different Denominators

Adding mixed numbers with different denominators. There are no improper fractions in the addends or the answers.

Adding Mixed Numbers (Improper Fractions) MemberThese addition problems have mixed numbers with improper fractions in the sums. A few also have improper fractions as addends.

Subtracting Fractions:

Same Denominator

Subtract pairs of fractions with the same denominator; No simplifying; Vertical problems. (example: 3/5 - 1/5 = 2/5)

Subtracting Fractions 2 MemberSubtract fractions with the same denominator; Requires simplifying; Vertical problems. (example: 7/9 - 1/9 = 2/3)

Subtracting Fractions 3 MemberSubtract the fractions with like denominators; Horizontal problems. (example: 2/3 - 1/3 = 1/3)

Subtracting Fractions:

Different Denominators

Worksheet for subtracting fractions with unlike denominators; Only one denominator needs to be changed; Vertical problems; Requires simplifying. (example: 2/3 - 1/6 = 1/2)

Subtracting Fractions (Unlike Denominators) 2 MemberSubtract fractions with unlike denominators. (example: 2/6 - 1/3)

Subtracting Mixed Numbers:

Same Denominators

Subtract the mixed numbers with the same denominator; Vertical problems; Requires simplifying; Includes a word problem.

Subtracting Mixed Numbers:

Different Denominators

These subtraction problems have mixed numbers. Find the differences and simplify your answers.
