Rating: 5 Teachers: Must have! by By A customer I purchased this game because I am a grade 3 teacher and I tutor. First, this is a perfect visual for comparing fractions. Students love putting the colorful "Fizzy Fraction" pieces into the cylinders. I love that I can present the students with 2 fractions to compare and ask them to state which is greater, then they have fun taking 2 cylinders and putting the correct "FIzzy Fractions" in each. Then I use the visual to talk about why one is greater then another. Lastly, we use the pieces to play the game. For more advanced students, I reverse the rules and have them start with a full cylinder with pieces of their choice. Then I have them draw a fraction card and remove that piece from their cylinder. If they do not have the exact piece, then they have to exchange some pieces to get what they need. This forces them to find equivalent fractions. I still love the "Pizza" Fraction games and fraction bars, but this is a colorful, fun, and different way to explore and play with fractions.
Rating: 4 Great for parents by By A customer This product has great looks and feel. However, it was too much for my 5 yo. I will try again in half a year, or so.
Rating: 5 Fun for the classroom by By A customer I am a math teacher and I loved playing this game with my students. At first the students weren’t too excited to play because they saw the word fraction but on day two of math games day they asked to play again. I also got my family to have a little bit of fun with the game. Also to make the game fit the high school curriculum I added in a probability piece when we play.
Rating: 5 fun game /excellent quality by By A customer This game is fun for all ages. We enjoyed playing with our 9 year old - easy rules, quality cylinders and fraction pieces. She noticed that the fraction cards you draw are color coordinated with the piece you need to place in the tube, which made it easy to select out of the pile. We even had fun stacking up pieces next to each other to compare.ie: 1/2 next to a stack of (2) 1/4.
Rating: 5 This is a must have! by By A customer The children in my School absolutely loved this game. They are ages 3-5 years of age. One stated, “I want to play this game everyday!” The others followed suit.
Rating: 5 Great way to teach fraction concepts. by By A customer This game plays a lot like "21". We purchased it to help a struggling student. It is clearly helping him get better at understanding and working with fractions, and younger siblings are quickly mastering the basic principles of fractions.
Rating: 5 Educational game- fractions and strategy. by By A customer Love this game. But changed the rules. Deal out 6 cards to each person. Then take turns to add a fraction-piece to the cylinder. After your turn, draw another card. The goal- determine which combinations will add up to 1. For example- strategy includes 1/5ths and 1/10ths will work to add to 1. Even denominator numbers can be chosen to add to 1 more easily. Our child compares and contrasts different combinations to determine what to should choose and thinks several turns ahead. He is able to ‘see’ and hands-on that e.g., two 1/10ths are equal to 1/5th...
