This is a fraction game to assist students to convert proper fractions into decimals using models as a guide. The game is fun and interactive and will assist students in consolidating their knowledge about fractions and decimals. This game is targeted at a year 3, year 4 or year 5 level for maths and includes two sequential game boards.
How to Play Game 1:
1. Remove all the Jacks, Queens, Kings and Jokers from a pack of cards. Turn over 2 cards and place them on the game board.
2. Using the model, students circle the chocolate bars corresponding to the card placed on the whole number. Then shade the number of parts corresponding to the card placed on the numerator.
3. Students record the decimal that matches the whole number and the fraction.
4. The winner is the player with the highest amount of chocolate bars.
How to Play Game 2:
1. Similar to the first game, however students turn over 3 cards and place them on the whole number, the numerator and the denominator.
2. When the students shade the model of their chocolate bar, they will have different denominators for their fractions.
3. The teacher will need to explain how the students can convert their fraction to parts out of 100.
4. Each player then shades in their fraction on the 100 square model.
5. The player with largest amount of chocolate is declared the winner.
