Smart Notebook, Power Point and pdf
, all of which are highly interactive.
This is a great way to teach, reinforce or review fractions. Its informal yet challenging approach creates an atmosphere of excitement where students want to uncover the answer rather than feeling that it is just another set of mundane problems to solve.
This game can be purchased separately or in one of two different bundles. Click Here

Students must be able to add and subtract fractions with different denominators to play this game.
It consists of 12 separate pages each with 4 different expressions to simplify. All four are carefully created to look very different at first, but with simplification three of the four expressions are identical, or equivalent
, in value while the fourth one is different. The fourth appears to be similar only if the student makes a mistake in simplification. The approach taken helps students to further develop their understanding of the title topic and the rules that apply. It also strives to build the base math skill of recognizing equivalence
, a key concept necessary to be successful in high school math and beyond. (please check out the accompanying preview for a more complete description of how it works, what it looks like and all that is included)
The original concept was conceived to allow large groups to play all at once, such as an entire class. But, it also comes in printable Task Cards or Worksheets w/answer keys for smaller groups or as supplementary/extension materials for individuals at any point on the ability continuum. Finally, a pdf student response sheet, useful for all of the above mentioned formats is included. By design, this invaluable resource provides the flexibility you need so that it can be used in almost every classroom situation with almost every level of skill.
