This game is so much fun and I've never had a student that didn't love it!
This is a great game for centers or for your whole class.
Students roll number cubes and use the sum of the numbers as their denominator in a unit fraction. They fill in the unit fraction on their game board. They race to fill in the most circles. I have also added some basic probability and critical thinking skills.
* Students will discover that when the denominator in a unit fraction is smaller, they have a bigger piece
*They discover how many unit fractions are in one whole and also in one half
*They add and subtract unit fractions without even realizing it!
*Students will discuss the probability of rolling combinations that will give them each of the denominators.
