Educational Insights Fraction Formula Game visually teaches children about fractions. It’s a fun math game for kids that is colorful, playful, and educational.
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?
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.
