A very nice interactive matching activity which asks the pupils to match 9 decimals to 9 fractions. It can be changed everytime you play it and the difficulty can be adjusted for the more able pupils. An ideal starter activity or could be used as a plenary activity to check pupil understanding.
A fun fractions game to reinforce the concept of fractions of shape. Students must find the matching fraction in numbers and the fraction represented as a shape.
In pairs or small groups students deal the cards, face down, equally between themselves. The first player places a card, face up, to begin a pile. The next player places their card, face up, on the pile. Continue until a shape and a numeral card representing the same fraction are placed on top of one another. The student who shouts ‘Snap!’ first keeps that pile. Continue until one player has won all the cards.
These cards can also be used to play other games such as memory pairs.
Included: 30 cards making 15 pairs
This game involves playing snap with cards that show equivalent fractions.
Alternatively the cards can also be used to play go fish with equivalent fractions.

Play a game to match equivalent fractions and equivalent fractions/decimals. Children choose the co-ordinates of two squares and use the whiteboard eraser to reveal the fraction or decimal underneath. Matching pairs are highlighted in different colours and non-matching pairs are covered up for the next attempt. Can be played in small groups or with the whole class in two teams Lots of opportunities for probing questions - reveal one square and ask children to suggest what the missing equivalent could be.Other topics covered: Numbers
