Here is a list of all of the skills that cover fractions!  These skills are organized by grade.  Study the skills

First learn each fraction concept and skill by reviewing, relearning, and self-testing three times per session the following in order:

-1- The Standards and Learning Objectives – set context for determining what is to be “learned”;

-2-  The Glossary – precisely recognize, name and define the needed concepts, skills and rules, forwards and backwards;

-3-  The Worked Examples – become familiar with what is asked, what is given and recognize  similar kinds of questions;

-4-  The Progression – connect each standard, concept and skill with prior knowledge, the current lesson content and future lessons to be learned;

-5-  The Summary Rules – learn a summary of the shortcut rules that identify question types and how to skillfully answer them – to include why the rules are true ; and finally

-6-  The Application of the Rules – to learn when and where to apply them to skillfully answer them.

By working problems for each skill you can practice Application of the Rules for each single skill at IXL Fraction Skills Practice.
