Unit Rate Word Problem Worksheets

These free unit rate worksheets will help you discover the importance of unit rates in real life.  Each problem contains a short situation where a unit rate makes more sense than the ratio that’s given.

The first set of rate problems is restricted to whole numbers.    The rest of the rate worksheets  involve situations that utilize decimals in a variety of ways.  Each set mixes the data around so that students can’t use the same algorithm every time.

Each math worksheet is accompanied by an answer key, is printable, and can be customized to fit your needs.

These unit rate and proportion worksheets will help students meet Common Core Standards for Ratios & Proportional Relationships by working with unit rates in multiple representations.  I would recommend these exercise for 5th grade, 6th grade, and 7th grade math students.
