Lesson Plan Description
This math game addresses Numbers and Operations-Fractions: recognizing and generating equivalent fractions. In this game: students will select a fraction card and then need to create a “buddy” fraction or an equivalent fraction to match it. They can use the strategy of either multiplying or dividing to accomplish this task. The trick is, they will be timed to see how many equivalent fractions they can create in 30 seconds. Students will generate equivalent fractions using both multiplication and division.
