Fraction Operation Solve and Draw Printables are an easy no-prep way to make review work or practice of fraction addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division more engaging. These are also designed to provide practice the skills of reading math directions and place value.
How Solve & Draw Printables Work:
Students solve the fraction calculations and add to the drawing based on their answers. To keep them guessing, each problem may have one correct drawing prompt, two, or none. Each page has an average of 7 responses that require drawing. Drawing is no-prep because it can be done with the student’s normal writing utensil (pen or pencil). You may choose to allow colored pencils, crayons, or markers but they are not required. This works well as a homework option for families who may not have those supplies to offer.
Drawing prompts require a student to use multiple skills:
- Fraction calculations – addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division
- Fractions vocabulary: fractions written as words, mixed number, whole numbers
- Reading accurately and attending to detail
An optional challenge page is included that can be copied on the back of the worksheet – this gives students an extension opportunity by asking them to create a math equation that fits one of the incorrect drawing prompts or to create a math equation and their own drawing prompts.
Solve & Draw resources are inspired by a group of artistic students who love to create and detest practicing math skills in the same boring ways. I hope this resource can make math practice and review fun in your classroom or home, too!
Welcome to my store! I have been teaching for 12 years, and my goal is to help every student succeed. My heart, and expertise, is with striving learners. My students with learning disabilities and autism have inspired my resources. One particularly artistic group of reluctant mathematicians inspired my Solve & Draw line of math resources.
