Fraction Formula™ Game

Aligned to:
• 3.G.2. Partition shapes into parts with equal areas. Express the area of each part as a unit fraction of the whole.

• 4.NF.1. Explain why a fraction a/b is equivalent to a fraction (n × a)/(n × b) by using visual fraction models, with attention to how the number and size of the parts differ even though the two fractions themselves are the same size.

• 4.NF.2. Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators, e.g., by creating common denominators or numerators, or by comparing to a benchmark fraction such as 1/2.

• 5.NF.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.

• 5.NF.2. Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions referring to the same whole, including cases of unlike denominators, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem.

A student favorite!

By Patti

Pros

• Engaging
• Interactive

Cons

Best Uses

• Older Children
• Special Needs
• Young Children

My students love this! It is a hit in the Resource Room. Great visual and kinesthetic approach for fraction equivalencies and completing a whole. We also use it for comparing fractions. Colorful and durable, even my oldest students (8th graders), love using it to familiarize themselves with fractions.

We have used this product as intended, game format, as well as free time exploration. My first graders can even build "1 whole" and tell me how many parts make up the whole. It is engaging either way!

Very Good to Have

What a fun game!! This is one of the cleverest ways I have ever seen for teaching the concepts of fractions. As the students play they talk about equivalent fractions, adding fractions, even reducing and comparing them.

I have always been a fan of games in the classroom. They provide an excellent way to develop the understanding of concepts through inquiry… provided of course the games are unique, engaging, and mathematically sound in process and content. Fraction Formula definitely meets these three criteria.

The parts are big and bold, not easily lost, and are very dimensional, which is a huge asset when it comes to teaching. The instructions are easy to read and figure out, enough so that a group of children could grab the game and go. The playing of the game moves along fast enough to not bore children, but smooth enough to promote thoughtful interaction.

From a classroom perspective this a good game to have on the shelf.
