ATTENTION! I've created a Brand New "Cheat Sheet" to help your students with starting up the game. The goal is to wean them off of it over time, but I've included it in the newest version of Stack UP! (10/22/19)

Use your basic knowledge of Fractions, Decimals, and Percents in this fun and challenging game. Solitaire meets MATH and speaking from first hand experience, you'll LOVE the challenge this game presents. Within the game you have printable cards (front and back) with custom designs. Just laminate / cut and you'll be ready to play with your students tomorrow!

This game can be played with 2 - 4 people, but with the ability to make more copies, your entire class can play at once. I would suggest to try playing it yourself with your spouse, a select group of students, or a colleague to get a feel for the rules of the game and strategies. You'll be hooked as you develop your own strategies and I can almost guarantee your students will want to play time and time again! Any and all rule changes / suggestions are welcomed!

Please either submit a review or email me at sphillips@4rhuskies.org with further questions you may have about Stack Up!

Understand the concept of a ratio and use ratio language to describe a ratio relationship between two quantities. For example, “The ratio of wings to beaks in the bird house at the zoo was 2:1, because for every 2 wings there was 1 beak.” “For every vote candidate A received, candidate C received nearly three votes.”
Understand that multiplication is extended from fractions to rational numbers by requiring that operations continue to satisfy the properties of operations, particularly the distributive property, leading to products such as (–1)(–1) = 1 and the rules for multiplying signed numbers. Interpret products of rational numbers by describing real-world contexts.
Comparing the size of a product to the size of one factor on the basis of the size of the other factor, without performing the indicated multiplication.
Interpret the product (𝘢/𝘣) × 𝘲 as a parts of a partition of 𝘲 into 𝘣 equal parts; equivalently, as the result of a sequence of operations 𝘢 × 𝘲 ÷ 𝘣. For example, use a visual fraction model to show (2/3) × 4 = 8/3, and create a story context for this equation. Do the same with (2/3) × (4/5) = 8/15. (In general, (𝘢/𝘣) × (𝘤/𝘥) = 𝘢𝘤/𝘣𝘥.)
Interpret a fraction as division of the numerator by the denominator (𝘢/𝘣 = 𝘢 ÷ 𝘣). Solve word problems involving division of whole numbers leading to answers in the form of fractions or mixed numbers, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem. For example, interpret 3/4 as the result of dividing 3 by 4, noting that 3/4 multiplied by 4 equals 3, and that when 3 wholes are shared equally among 4 people each person has a share of size 3/4. If 9 people want to share a 50-pound sack of rice equally by weight, how many pounds of rice should each person get? Between what two whole numbers does your answer lie?
