Math games are a great way for students to get practice with important math skills while also giving students the opportunity to exercise social skills in a fun learning activity. This is a great option for math rotations or centers.
This game has 13 sets of fractions which the students use to find the matching forms of fractions in standard form, word form, number line form, and fraction circle form.
To get the game ready, just print on cardstock, cut and laminate for long term use.
Model how to play the game so the students can learn it and play it independently. I have 4 students play at a time. The cards are shuffled, each player gets 7 cards, and the rest are placed in a center pile, face-down. The first card of the pile is placed face up on the discard pile. The player on the left side of the dealer is the first to play and the game proceeds in a clockwise direction. The goal of the game is to obtain all 4 forms of each fraction and lay it down for points. Players can lay down three matches instead of four. Students must select a card from either the center pile or the discard pile on each play and also discard a card. The first player that has no cards left in hand ends the game. Each player counts the 3 or 4 card matches as 5 points a piece, and they must subtract five points per card still in their hand when the game ends. The player with the most points is the winner of the game.
I hope this game helps your students learn and makes your job a little easier.
