Contents:

  • 40 Match (80 tiles)
  • Game rules

Match Fractions contains answers with matching fractions. Two and two tiles match, so that for instance 1/2 and 2/4 will make a Match. There are also 20 bonus tiles in the box. These can be used to vary the game and increase the level of challenge. In the fractions box there are 10 tiles mixed numbers and 10 tiles with improper fractions that match. For instance will 1 ¾ and 7/4 make a Match.

The 20 bonus tiles in the fractions box and the decimals box can be mixed together and can then be matched (example: 1 ¾ matches 1.75).

It might be a good idea to pick out only a few tiles when you are introducing the game. This is also a great way to adjust the game to weaker or stronger students.

Match Fractions can be mixed up with Match Percentages and Match Decimals. This is an excellent way to better understand the connection between fractions, percentages and decimals. If you mix up all three boxes, every tile will match with at least five other tiles.

For example, the tile 1/2 will have the following matches:

50%
0.5
0.50
2/4

Match Fractions, Match Percentages and Match Decimals make up the second series of Match-games.
