Totally Tubular Fraction Formula Game

Affiliate Links Educational Insights Fraction Formula Game visually teaches children about fractions in a colorful, playful, and educational game.

We love it!

More than that, my kids, even my six year old, are finally conceptualizing fractions! So, fun and learning in one game, what’s not to love?

To Play:

Each player starts with a cylinder. To play, draw one card from the card pile. Drop the card’s corresponding fraction fizzy tile into the cylinder. So, if you draw a 1/3 card, you put a 1/3 fizzy tile into your cylinder.

Play continues. The object is to get as close to 1 whole without going over.

Notice the above left cylinder. The green 1/5 fizzy tile has gone over the edge — so that player automatically loses. Points are awarded by who gets closest, second closest and third closest to one whole.

If you think you should stop adding fractions tiles you announce “hold” and stop playing.

The age recommendation is 8 – 11 but JJ is 6 and she did fine.

I love this hands-on math game because it really helps us visually see the fractions. This is always a top pick for my kids on family game night.

    Great way to learn about fractions! Actually seeing what is being talked about really concretizes the concept. And makes it fun! Great idea!

  • Lisa B

    Great idea! My kids (and husband) would love to play this!!

  • Robin

    It’s so hard to teach fractions without using pizza and cookies. As much as I love pizza and cookies, those get old fast when teaching this math concept. Since this hands-on game includes both manipulatives and number cards it’s a great concept. Definately, a keeper!

  • Debbie Coats

    I think this would be a great game for my second graders when we work with fractions. : )
