Fraction Formula Game
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 fraction card from the card pile.
Drop the card’s corresponding fraction colored tile into the cylinder. For example, if you draw a 1/3 card, you put a 1/3 fizzy tile into your cylinder.
The object is to get as close to 1 whole without going over.
If a player draws a fraction that makes your tile go over the top line, that player automatically loses.
If you think you should stop adding fractions tiles because you’re too close to the top, you announce “hold” and stop playing.
Points are awarded by who gets closest to one whole — the top line with the second closest and third closest to one whole as second and third place.
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.
