Practise maths with fractions

Fractions are taught from year four. First of all, students have to understand what fractions are. This is achieved by visualising fractions, for instance using a pizza diagram or showing where fractions are on the number line. In year five this continues on to maths with fractions. Problems they solve here are finding the least common denominator, adding fractions, and subtracting fractions. Two aspects of division many students find difficult are multiplication and division of fractions. These topics are usually covered year five and six, and repeated in year seven.

This website was developed to help primary school students learn maths. By offering clear maths problems, numeracy can be practised both in class and at home. Parents and children can practise together, for instance.

The exercises have been divided per year and per arithmetic skill. Through a variety of exercises you can practise primary school fraction skills here, which you also learn in year five.
