These Boom cards give students practice with decomposing fractions. There are four different types of problems and 21 cards in this deck! The problems ask students to drag and drop to decompose using unit fractions, use visual models to decompose and connect number lines with decomposing. These cards are interactive with sounds and images, and students will love manipulating them. Boom cards are fun!

They are also versatile! You can assign them through your Google Classroom easily (click here to learn more about that!). They also work in See Saw! Boom cards are awesome for:

1. Centers

2. Differentiation

3. Small groups

4. Whole class

5. Distance Learning

Decompose a fraction into a sum of fractions with the same denominator in more than one way, recording each decomposition by an equation. Justify decompositions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model. Examples: 3/8 = 1/8 + 1/8 + 1/8; 3/8 = 1/8 + 2/8; 2 1/8 = 1 + 1 + 1/8 = 8/8 + 8/8 + 1/8.
