How to play Fractions Roll?
- Spread the Fractions Roll game board.
- Shuffle the stack of Fraction Cards and keep them face down beside the game board.
- The 1st player begins the game by picking the top card from the stack of Fractions Card and placing it face up next to the stack.
- Let’s say she picks up a fraction card with 1/4 on it.
- Next, she will find the first fraction on the board which when added to 1/4 makes it equal to 1.
- So here she needs to find the first 3/4 or a fraction which when reduced to its simplest form equals 3/4.
- On the board, 9/12 is the first fraction which is equivalent to 3/4. Therefore she will move her place marker to 9/12.
- Next, it is the 2nd player’s turn. She will follow the same steps of picking the top Fraction Card; finding the first fraction (or equivalent fraction) on the game board to make 1, and placing her place marker on that fraction.
There are 3 kinds of special cards in the stack of Fraction Cards;
- Move ahead 2 steps – If a player picks this card, she will move ahead 2 steps without doing any addition.
- Move back 3 steps – If a player picks this card, she will move back 3 steps without doing any addition. In case the player is still at the start position, she will not make any move.
- Miss your turn – If a player picks this card, she will stay put at her current place.
