Word Problems – Fractional Answers

With our Word Problems – Fractional Answers lesson plan students learn how to solve word problems that include fractions in their answers. Students practice both writing and solving word problems with fractional answers during this lesson.


Our Word Problems – Fractional Answers lesson plan teaches students strategies for solving word problems that include answers with fractions in them. During this lesson, students are asked to look at fractions and write word problems that could have that fraction as their answer and then solve them. Students are also asked to solve practice problems that have fractions as answers in order to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson material.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to solve word problems involving division of whole numbers leading to answers in the form of fractions or mixed numbers.
