I need a book that explains fraction and has answer key to it for 5th grader. My sister is homeschooling and is having a hard time with the fractions. So it makes it hard for her to teach her son if she doesn't remember how to do them LOL Please pm me if you can help. Thanks glo

This isn't a book, but one site my DS has always loved:

I just posted a bunch of Lifepac books. I think one of them is on fractions but not sure if someone already requested that one. Hope you find what you need. Peggy

I like ordering from www.mathmammoth.com  they are inexpensive PDF file workbooks with great explanations and answer keys......I havefound for my son they are really self teaching with a minimal amount of help.
