This exciting card game is great way to practice changing improper fractions to mixed numbers and mixed numbers to improper fractions. It's a favorite in my 4th grade math class. Students collect the most cards by correctly changing improper fractions to mixed numbers and visa versa. But if they draw a ZAP card, they must return all of their cards to the discard pile. The excitement and anticipation of this simple card game makes students forget that they are actually practicing fractions!

This resource includes:

  • teacher directions and tips
  • student directions for how to play Zap (the same directions can be used for both versions of the game)
  • improper fractions to mixed numbers version - 24 problem cards (students must change each improper fraction to a mixed number), 3 ZAP cards, and an answer key
  • mixed numbers to improper fractions version - 24 problem cards (students must change each mixed number to an improper fraction), 3 ZAP cards, and an answer key

Explain why a fraction 𝘒/𝘣 is equivalent to a fraction (𝘯 Γ— 𝘒)/(𝘯 Γ— 𝘣) by using visual fraction models, with attention to how the number and size of the parts differ even though the two fractions themselves are the same size. Use this principle to recognize and generate equivalent fractions.
Add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators (including mixed numbers) by replacing given fractions with equivalent fractions in such a way as to produce an equivalent sum or difference of fractions with like denominators. For example, 2/3 + 5/4 = 8/12 + 15/12 = 23/12. (In general, 𝘒/𝘣 + 𝘀/π˜₯ = (𝘒π˜₯ + 𝘣𝘀)/𝘣π˜₯.)
Interpret a fraction as division of the numerator by the denominator (𝘒/𝘣 = 𝘒 ÷ 𝘣). Solve word problems involving division of whole numbers leading to answers in the form of fractions or mixed numbers, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem. For example, interpret 3/4 as the result of dividing 3 by 4, noting that 3/4 multiplied by 4 equals 3, and that when 3 wholes are shared equally among 4 people each person has a share of size 3/4. If 9 people want to share a 50-pound sack of rice equally by weight, how many pounds of rice should each person get? Between what two whole numbers does your answer lie?
