Math games are a great math activity to replace worksheets and give students a chance to practice a skill in a fun way with other students to have some good social interaction.
This Rummy game focuses on finding equivalent fractions in different forms (standard, word, number line representation, and fraction circles). You may want to provide fraction models to differentiate for students that need a little more support. It is designed for third-fifth grade students and can be played with 3-6 players. There are 52 playing cards with 13 sets of equivalent fractions.
Students use the fraction circle model as the starting fraction and find three other equivalent fractions equivalent to the fraction circle model to complete their play. In some cases the fraction will be the same fraction in a different form. There is an ‘answer key’ on page 30 that shows the equivalent fractions used in this game. This can be used to make sure the plays are correct.
As with most games, students will benefit from your modeling the game, as many will not know how to play.
