Product Description
This equivalent fractions game is modeled after the traditional card game, "Old Maid." Students play "Old Math Guy" in groups of 4-5. Students will demonstrate their ability to identify equivalent fractions. Examples of equivalent fractions used: 1/3=4/12, 2/5=6/15, and 5/8=10/16. There are also three whole numbers included: 1=4/4, 2=6/3, and 3=12/4.

To play, first students deal out all of the cards. Then, without showing others the cards in their hands, students look for matching pairs of equivalent fractions. They put down any pairs in front of them face up so others can confirm that they have indeed found a match.

One player begins by holding their cards facing down in a fanned out fashion and offering their hand to the student to their left. If the receiving student gets a card that is a match with a card already in their hand they can put it down. Then the student who just took a card turns to the student on their left and allows them to select a card at random, etc.

There is one card that is the “Old Math Guy.” (Use either the color or black and white version.) The student who is stuck with this card after all other pairs are matched loses the game.

Included:
-34 cards (17 pairs)
-Old Math Guy (both color and black and white version) included
-Answer key
-Teacher's Guide with CCSS, objectives, materials, and procedure
