5 Minute Time Limit per Game

No Time Limit: Great for Teaching and Student Practice

Instructions:

  • The program above generates random fraction questions. The first game gives you 5 minutes to practise. In the 5 minutes that you have, solve as many problems as you can. Each time you answer a question correctly, you earn a point. If you prefer not to have a time limit, choose the second game instead. The second game records your start time and shows you the current time for you to track the amount of time you have spent in each session. Both games have an annotation feature, which was added to help students and teachers show their work and model problem solving strategies right on the page. Test your skills and practise to improve your personal high score! The first answer is given (arrow points to it). This program can be used as either practice or test and it generates randomized questions and answers! No two tests will ever be the same. When used properly, this is proven to improve fraction skills in students.

Suggested Lessons or Activities:

  • This can be used for teaching, practice and assessment. Students can use this resource to strengthen their fraction skills.
  • This is a comprehensive resource that covers the following concepts:
    • identifying common fractions (e.g., 1/2, 1/3, 3/4, 8/12, ...)
    • fractions written in words (e.g., one-third, three-eights, etc.)
    • comparing fractions (e.g., <1/2, >1/3)
    • adding fractions (modelling this with pizza)
    • improper fractions and mixed numbers (e.g., 12/8, 1 4/5)
  • teachers and students can use the annotation feature to show how you solve the questions right on the page

Special Features:

  • full screen
  • annotation to show strategies using different colours
  • great pizza graphics for every question
  • questions are completely randomized with a massive bank of possible questions (NO 2 test will ever be exactly the same!!!)
  • stopwatch (5 minutes maximum time) and time stamp for the resource with unlimited time
  • works very well with Interactive Whiteboards
