Students practice multiplying and dividing fractions and whole numbers in this fun dominoes game!
This game addresses the following Common Core Standards:
5.NF.B.4 - Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication to multiply a
fraction or whole number by a fraction.
6.NF.B.7 - Apply and extend previous understandings of division to divide unit fractions by whole numbers and whole numbers by unit fractions. (Students able to multiply fractions in general can develop strategies to divide fractions in general, by reasoning about the relationship between multiplication and division. But division of a fraction by a fraction is not a requirement at this grade.)
These cards will hold up longest if printed on heavy duty paper such as construction paper or card stock. Lamination is optional, but could also extend longevity of each set you make. Sets store well in labeled sandwich baggies or library pockets. Be sure to label each set as there are eight versions. Another option to keep the sets separate is to print each set on a different color of paper.
Suggestions for Use
As an independent activity - Each student gets a set at their own level, or each starts with Set A and works their way up through Set H.
As a center - Copy as many sets as would be needed for your group sizes, provide guidance on how to play the game and use as a math center activity
As a game - Works best with pairs, but can accommodate 3 students. Students take turns starting with the start domino, each placing the domino he/she thinks goes next. Once the students agree they have found a sequence that works, they record answers on the answer sheet. Game instructions have been provided for distribution.
An answer key as well as recording sheets for the students have been provided so this can be used as an assessment tool for the teacher, or so students can self- assess as they complete the activity.
Eight sets of Dominoes are included. These sets can be used simultaneously in class based on individual student needs, or students can work through them as a progression.
- Set A Multiply a Whole Number by a Fraction.
- Set B Multiply a Fraction by a Whole Number.
- Set C Multiply Fractions and Whole Numbers.
- Set D Multiply Fractions by Fractions.
- Set E Divide a Whole Number by a Fraction.
- Set F Divide a Fraction by a Whole Number.
- Set G Divide Fractions and Whole Numbers.
- Set H Multiply and Divide Whole Numbers and Fractions.
