In this work we suggest a numerical approach based on the B-spline polynomial to obtain the solution of linear fractional partial differential equations. We find the operational matrix for fractional integration and then we convert the main problem into a system of linear algebraic equations by using this matrix. Examples are provided to show the simplicity of our method.
