The worksheets on this page have various types of practice for multiplying fractions. Included are problems that focus on cross-cancelling which is a skill that greatly simplifies the process of reducing fractions in the answer step. Cross cancelling prior to multiplying fractions results in much smaller products which are significantly easier to reduce and turn into proper fractions.
Reducing fractions is another skill involved in just about any of the fraction operations. The fraction worksheets on this page introduce reducing gradually by providing problems with increasingly more difficult denominators, and only gradually introducing mixed numbers and improper fractions.
Children will be learning at school how to round up decimals to the nearest whole number. A fun way to practise this at home is to use regular dominos and establish that each piece is a decimal number (so a domino one with 3 dots and 4 dots is 3.4). Encourage them to play with the dominos, but with the rule that they can only, for example, join 2 dominos that are within 1.5 of each other. This will really get them thinking about what each decimal point represents. A number line can also be useful when rounding decimals.
One of the first skills students learn is addition. Addition is the natural advance after counting. Many students do not grasp this basic skill properly. As a result, students find it difficult to advance to higher level skills and they get stuck. Therefore, to make the task easier, here are five easy ways to learn addition. You may have heard of some of these games, they go by many different names. In addition to some simple games, we offer up some techniques to keep in mind when adding numbers in general. If you are already good at addition, you will still find these tips helpful to make you faster at addition.
