Grade 5 Simplifying Fractions Worksheets

Free grade 5 simplifying fraction worksheets to help your students improve their knowledge in Mathematics. Use these simplifying fraction worksheets to save your time and give your students the practice they need. Simplifying fractions can be challenging and takes a bit of repetition. Explicitly teach your students how to simplify fractions with simple fractions, and then move on to more tricky ones. Ensure you give your children a chance to practice daily during maths. Teach them to find a number that the numerator and denominator can be divided by. Often students start with dividing by two and go from there. It’s a good strategy to start out with. Eventually, you’ll want to use language such as ‘greatest common factor’ when finding a number that can divide the numerator and denominator. Give it time and your students will be using the same language of maths as you!
