Victorian Curriculum outcome : Count by quarters halves  and thirds, including with mixed numerals. Locate and represent these fractions on a number line
Task description : .Students play the “one bar” version of Fraction Bar Racing. For each move they make, they indicate on a number line which card they turned over and where they ended up.
Assessment options : Drawings, screenshots, screencasts, photographs of physical models.
Teacher notes : The PC version of the game can be tricky to run – try it out before getting the kids to use it. Mathletics are working on a tablet-friendly version of this game for us. The cards offer more choice at this stage – you can reduce the number of different fractions available for those who are struggling.
