# Fractions to Decimals Worksheets

All worksheets are in PDF.

Remember, look at the fraction bar as a 'divided by' bar. For instance 1/2 means the same as 1 divided by 2 which equals 0.5. Or 3/5 is 3 divided by 5 which equals 0.6. That's all you need to know to convert the following worksheets on fractions to decimals! Converting fractions to decimals is a common concept that is often taught in the fifth and sixth grades in most educational jurisdictions. Students should have plenty of exposure to concrete manipulatives prior to complete pencil paper tasks. For instance, work with fraction bars and circles to ensure a deep understanding is in place.

Although calculators will do the conversion simply and quickly, it is still important for students to understand the concept in order to use the calculator. After all, you can't use a calculator if you don't know which numbers or operations to key in.
