a) Demonstrate that fractions can be represented in many different ways
b) Give practice in matching fractions with their pictorial representation
c) Give practice in matching fractions with the equivalent percentage
This is a game for two players. 10 different fractions (1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 2/3, 3/4, 1/5, 4/5, 9/10, 1/8 and 5/6 ) are represented in four different ways. The aim of the game is to collect as many cards as possible by shouting “snap” when two matching cards occur together.
An additional 10 cards represent the same fractions as a percentage. The game is played the same way.
The same cards can be used with three or four players to play a version of “Happy Families.”
