Onward, to planet Zorb! Players help space explorer Floyd get his ship across the galaxy by creating fuel cells for him in this intergalactic math game. To get Floyd moving, kids create visual representations of fractions. Once they have visuals, they can compare the fractions to determine which one is bigger or smaller, helping to deepen their understanding of parts of a whole.
All your students need to be able to compare fractions with the same denominators is this exercise.
Demystify comparing fractions with different denominators by giving your students access to this easy to understand exercise.
Birdee is mining for gems, and she needs your help! In this interactive math game, kids hone their understanding of halves, thirds, and fourths. Players must identify improper and mixed fractions and use the pickaxe to uncover gems hidden behind the rocks. By converting improper to mixed fractions (or vice versa), kids gain a deeper understanding of how parts of a whole relate to each other.
Help students identify mixed numbers and improper fractions with this exercise that is easy to use and understand.
In a jungle far away, Roly is stranded on a vine. Kids help him move around by adding fractions on a number line. With funny sounds and engaging animations, kids will have fun seeing the progression of movement along the number line.
