Product Description
Equivalent Fractions, Improper Fractions to Mixed Numbers, Adding, Subtracting, Multiplying, Dividing
4 PRINT and GO Game Boards

Teacher Prep:
Provide 2 dice and 1 token per player (you may use any math manipulatives, soda caps, etc.)

1. Race to the Top: One student rolls 2 dice to get an improper fraction (5/3). Each student finds the equivalent mixed number. Students compare and justify their answers before moving their tokens.
2. Adding and Subtracting Board Game: Students roll 2 dice to move around the board. They use the dice number to create a fraction. The game will ask them to create an equivalent fraction, add, or subtract with another fraction. Students will justify their answers.
3. Multiply and Divide Game Board: The same rules apply as with board #2, but students will multiply or divide.
4. Mixed Operations Game Board: The same rules apply, but students will either add, subtract, multiple, or divide.

DIFFERENTIATE
Use more dice to create larger fractions (2 green dice and 2 white: add or multiply the green dice to create numerator and add or multiply the white dice to create the denominator).

While these games are fully functional with the minimal prep instructions, additional OPTIONAL materials are also provided: printable game tokens and printable white board for justifying work (place it in a sheet protector and use with dry erase markers).

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.5.NF.A.1
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, a/b + c/d = (ad + bc)/bd.)
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.5.NF.B.4
Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication to multiply a fraction or whole number by a fraction.
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.5.NF.B.7
Apply and extend previous understandings of division to divide unit fractions by whole numbers and whole numbers by unit fractions.
