Simplifying Fractions Card Game




I love this idea from Education.com

I used this game with my 12 yr old and it's a great way to reinforce fractions and ways to simplify them.



Simplifying fractions is the name of this fast-paced race game! Learning how to write fractions in their simplest form is essential for math class and real-world scenarios. Give kids the practice they need to master this skill, which is a building block for the addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of fractions.

You need to have Playing cards,Pencils, Paper.

What You Do:

1. Draw a line through the center of a piece of paper, cutting it in half crosswise. This will act as a fraction bar, separating the numerator and the denominator during the game. Create one of these for every two players.

2. Have each pair of players face each other.


3. Shuffle and deal out the cards evenly between the players. Each person should place their cards in front of them, face down.
