A full 52-card deck full of fraction problems to solve! Students must quickly calculate common fractions of sets -- 1/3 of 6, 3/4 of 8, 3/8 of 24 -- to compare card values in the traditional "War" card game. Doing this over and over helps them develop number sense about fractions, and encourages them to reach fluency with these calculations.
Need to scaffold their learning? Use the deck with picture representations of the sets and fractions! Do they find that too easy? Use the deck without pictures and make them think! (Believe me, it's a totally different game without the pictures. Much harder.) If some of the problems are too hard, remove those cards from the deck and play without them -- there are plenty of cards here.
Both full color and black-and-white (minimal ink) options are included. A "cheat sheet" or answer key is also here, if you need it.
