Fraction Tutorials

Subject: Fraction tutorials

My son is in the 5th grade in Florida. He is now just having problems 
in math. These are the areas:

  multiplying fractions
  adding improper fractions,
  working with mixed number fractions

Do you know of any tutorials available on the net that would help him?

Please help.

Hi Pati -

You might like to explore a project here at the Math forum that is 
intended to serve as a prototype for others (the next one, under 
construction, will be on measurement):

A Tour of Fractions


Here's another page to explore:

NASA 9th grade math proficiency test (with answers): 



And for a comprehensive review of fractions for an adult as well as 
exercises for your child, try S.O.S. MATHematics at




Hope this helps you and your son.
