Fraction Subtraction War is a fun way to learn to subtract and reduce fractions. This fun card game that we all grew up with is now in an educational version of Fraction Subtraction War. Students flip over their cards at the same time and subtract the fractions. The player with the largest fraction wins all cards. War happens when there are equivalent fractions. The student who has the most cards at the end of the game wins! For more advanced play, players reduce the fraction and compare to see who has the largest fraction.
This game focuses on subtraction and reducing fractions with common denominators and comparing fractions to other fractions. This game is ideal for partners, small groups and math centers.

Great for The Common Core!
Understand two fractions as equivalent (equal) if they are the same size, or the same point on a number line.
Recognize and generate simple equivalent fractions, e.g., 1/2 = 2/4, 4/6 = 2/3. Explain why the fractions are equivalent, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
Express whole numbers as fractions, and recognize fractions that are equivalent to whole numbers. Examples: Express 3 in the form 3 = 3/1; recognize that 6/1 = 6; locate 4/4 and 1 at the same point of a number line diagram.
Compare two fractions with the same numerator or the same denominator by reasoning about their size. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
Understand addition and subtraction of fractions as joining and separating parts referring to the same whole.
Add and subtract mixed numbers with like denominators, e.g., by replacing each mixed number with an equivalent fraction, and/or by using properties of operations and the relationship between addition and subtraction.
