Students fill in either a numerator or denominator of the sum, where the object is to get as close to 2 as possible. There are four games – one where three fractions are added, one where three fractions are subtracted, one where two fractions are multiplied and one where two fractions are divided. Students must show an entire sheet of each, with working to show the result of each sum.
Assessment options : Photograph of game sheet.
