The game is designed for kids in 1st through 8th grade, but can be used with any ages. The game is played with 2 to 4 players and retails for $6.95 It can be purchased through the I See Cards website. This game, as well as their other math games, would make a great addition to any homeschool math program. This would make a great gift too.
The deck of cards contains three colored sets. Each set has a visual picture, tenths are green with a liquid bottle measurement, twelfths are blue with a dozen eggs measurement, and sixteenths are red with a measuring stick measurement. The visual aids are a big help. It is just like looking a slices of a pizza or pie to learn fractions. If the fraction is 1/2 of a dozen, you see an egg carton with six eggs in it, etc.
I played this game with my 11 year old son. He dealt out 7 cards for both of us. For our game, we had a draw pile and turned a card over to start a discard pile. From the cards in our hand we tried to add/combine the fractions to equal a whole, or one. This is called a “hand” in the game. Each player takes a turn drawing a card, trying to make a “hand” and discarding a card. The game is over when one person runs out of cards, and the winner is the player with the most “hands”.
I found this game to be challenging for both of us. I am not strong in some aspects of math, including converting fractions. I am hopeful, with more practice, this game will improve both our fraction math skills.
There are other games also listed to use with the cards. Here is a link to a 30 page booklet with games listed for Fractazmic and several different I See Cards decks including a popular math game called Pyramath.
