**Finding Fractions of An Inch Worksheet**

Trace each inch mark in yellow. Trace each half-inch (1/2) mark in orange. Trace each quarter-inch (1/4) mark in red. Trace each eighth-inch (1/8) mark in blue. Trace each sixteenth-inch (1/16) mark in green.

10
**What if the marks are NOT labeled?**

Like on MOST rulers… That’s why you have them MEMORIZED… So…you can write them in yourself and still be able to measure to a fraction of an inch!

11
Let’s practice! 1 inches How long is the length of the arrow to the nearest fraction of an inch? Share your answer with a partner!

12
Let’s keep practicing! 1 inches How long is the length of the arrow to the nearest fraction of an inch? Write your answer in your math notebook.

13
And some more! 1 inches How long is the length of the arrow to the nearest fraction of an inch? Write your answer in your math notebook.

14
**Read the directions carefully!**

1 inches If the directions say “measure to the nearest inch,” you have 1 option the whole number inch! Nearest Inch Whole number inches only!

15
**Read the directions carefully!**

1/2 1 inches If the directions say “measure to the nearest half inch,” you have 2 options the whole number inch or the ½ inch between! Nearest Half Inch Whole number inch ½ inch

16
**Quarter of an Inch Whole number inch ½ inch 3/4 1/4 1/2 ¼ or ¾ inch 1**

If the directions say “measure to the nearest quarter inch,” you have 4 options the whole number inch, the ½ inch, or the quarter inches (1/4 and ¾)! 3/4 1/4 1/2 1 inches Quarter of an Inch Whole number inch ½ inch ¼ or ¾ inch

17
**Nearest eighth of an Inch**
