Description

Fraction puzzle is a fun way to learn mixed fractions, proper fractions and improper fractions.

There are 3 sets included. Each set contains the same 63 sheets, with each sheet containing 4 sets of 4-piece puzzles. This represents a total of 252 different fractions.

Each individual 4-piece puzzle represents a particular fraction. Each fraction is represented in 4 different forms - 1 for each puzzle piece. The 4 fraction forms for each 4-piece puzzle are:

  • Mixed fraction
  • Proper fraction
  • Improper fraction
  • A graphic representing the fraction

The idea is to print (and optionally laminate) the puzzle sheets from the set most appropriate for your students, and cut out the fractions by cutting through all the thick black lines. Then jumble all the resulting pieces up. The game is now ready to play. Students can have fun putting the 4-piece puzzle sets back together again by finding the correct fraction forms and matching them with each other.

Although each of the 3 sets contain the same fractions, the sets are slightly different:

  • Set 1
    All the puzzle pieces are on a white background and the connections are the same shape for each puzzle piece. This means there are no clues from the shape of the puzzle pieces as to which fractions forms match together - you must rely on your understanding of fractions to figure it out. This makes it a little harder to 'solve' the puzzles.
  • Set 2
    Still on a white background, but this time the puzzle shapes are unique, so there's only one way for each 4-piece puzzle set to fit together. In other words, you can use the puzzle shapes to help match the 4 fraction forms together - an additional visual cue to help. By finding the right puzzle pieces that fit together, you also learn which fraction forms match.
  • Set 3
    Each 4-piece fraction puzzle set has a colored background depending on the denominator. For halves, the color is light blue, thirds are yellow, quarters are green, fifths are red, etc. The colors help to narrow down which pieces match together - again, a visual cue to help.

Included in this set are a few handy additional sheets:

  • Instructions sheet.
  • List of all the 252 fractions, identifying which document contains them (so you can easily find and re-print any).
  • A template sheet with the outline of the puzzle pieces from sets 1 & 3.
  • A template sheet with the outline of the puzzle pieces from set 2.

Ideal for distance learning - no prep required! Just print, cut, jumble and play!

Each page contains 4 fraction puzzles is presented as an individual JPG file, but there is also a single PDF document that contains all the the pages from each set together, so you have the best of both worlds to choose from.

Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. Mathematically proficient students start by explaining to themselves the meaning of a problem and looking for entry points to its solution. They analyze givens, constraints, relationships, and goals. They make conjectures about the form and meaning of the solution and plan a solution pathway rather than simply jumping into a solution attempt. They consider analogous problems, and try special cases and simpler forms of the original problem in order to gain insight into its solution. They monitor and evaluate their progress and change course if necessary. Older students might, depending on the context of the problem, transform algebraic expressions or change the viewing window on their graphing calculator to get the information they need. Mathematically proficient students can explain correspondences between equations, verbal descriptions, tables, and graphs or draw diagrams of important features and relationships, graph data, and search for regularity or trends. Younger students might rely on using concrete objects or pictures to help conceptualize and solve a problem. Mathematically proficient students check their answers to problems using a different method, and they continually ask themselves, "Does this make sense?" They can understand the approaches of others to solving complex problems and identify correspondences between different approaches.
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.
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.
Understand two fractions as equivalent (equal) if they are the same size, or the same point on a number line.
Explain equivalence of fractions in special cases, and compare fractions by reasoning about their size.
