These games familiarise children with fractions and reinforce what fractions mean. The dominoes are played the same way as conventional dominoes but by representing each fraction in eight different ways, I aim for children to extract the essence of what a fraction is rather than simply matching identical pictures. In this new 2017 version of my Fraction Dominoes, I have replaced many of the diagrams with photographs. There are four sets at different levels which I have listed both separately and as a bundle.

 

Set 1 1⁄2, 1⁄4, 3⁄4, 1⁄3 ,2⁄3, 1⁄5, 1

Set 2 1⁄6, 5⁄6, 1⁄8, 3⁄8, 5⁄8, 7⁄8, 1⁄12

Set 3 Equivalent fractions  1⁄2, 1⁄4, 3⁄4, 1⁄3, 2⁄3, 1⁄5, 4⁄5

Set 4 Equivalent fractions, including decimals and percentages 1⁄2, 1⁄4, 3⁄4 , 1⁄5, 4⁄5, 1⁄8, 1⁄10,

 

The equivalent fractions help to explain how the same value may appear in different forms. In set 3, 1⁄2 can be matched with both a numerical and a pictorial representation of  2⁄4, 3⁄6, 4⁄8, and 5⁄10, for example. 

 

Set 4 introduces the idea that the same value can appear as a fraction, as a decimal or as a percentage. 1⁄2 can be matched with 0.5 and 50% as well as with half a box of eggs or half an apple, for example.
