This card game is a fun and easy way to develop learn how to work with fractions.
The Fraction Subtraction Game covers subtraction of fractions with common denominators through the 30ths. For example, 8/18 - 1/18 = 7/18. There are no mixed fractions (e.g. 2 3/8) or improper fractions (9/7). The individual cards measure 1.5x3.5 inches.
The game plays like dominoes. There are 90 to 100 durable cards in each set. Each card has a math problem on one half and a boldly circled answer to a different math problem on the other half. Players match the correct answer with the matching problem while forming domino-type patterns with the cards. Although the game is designed for 2 or more players, the card deck can be used to drill fact families with an individual student.
