An excellent fractions booster activity from BGFL. There are five levels to work through. In level 1 you simply type in the number of children to share the pizza and the pizza will be cut into fractions for you. At Level 2 you drag fractions to complete a fraction wall. In Level 3 you have to count the number of shaded squares and the total number of squares then type in the fraction (use a slash e.g. 1/4). Level 4 introduces a fraction numberline for you to drag the fractions onto. Level 5 uses a pizza to illustrate fraction equivalences.
You can choose from easy or hard levels. The aim of the game is to compare the fractions and click on the one with the highest value. In the easy level you have four to choose from, but in the harder level you have six fractions to choose from. BBC Skillswise.
Fraction Flags Game
You can decide whether to make your flag with halves, quarters or a mixture of fractions. The next step is to design your own flag by painting it in different colours, making sure that the number of squares you paint in each colour matches the fraction shown. Oswego.
This is not really a game, more a series of interactive lessons which take you from "What is a Fraction?" to "Add/Subtract Fractions and Mixed Numbers". A good resource for revision which covers a lot of ground. KidsOLR.
Fraction Ordering Game
In this BBC Skillswise game you have to drag the fractions into the correct order, from the smallest at the bottom to the largest at the top. There are three different levels. At the easiest level all the fractions are one part, e.g. 1/6, 1/3, 1/4.
Hang each monkey in the correct place n the fraction numberline. You may have to find the lowest common denominator, e.g hang the 1/2 monkey where it says 2/4 on the numberline. There are two levels, easy and harder. If you hang a monkey in the wrong place he will fall off!
Help Melvin to match the fraction potion bottles. Click on any bottle and then you have to find one that matches. It could be two identical or equivalent fractions, or matching a fraction to a part-shaded shape. There are several levels which you can progress through. PBSKids.
A fraction is shown on the screen and you have to decide whether it is more than a half, the same as a half or less than a half and click the correct button. You have to be quick though otherwise you will miss your chance to answer the question. Ambleside Primary School.
Fraction Maths Splat
In this game from the Family Education Network you get to practise your fraction addition and subtraction knowledge. Work out the answer to the fraction question then click the correct bug. As you progress through the levels the game gets harder and you have to convert the fractions.
You will be shown a fraction and you have to divide the shape up into the required number of pieces to match the denominator then click to shade the sections to match the numerator. There's a button to click to check whether you've got it right. NLVM.
Use the buttons to make the shape on the left match the shape on the right using a different, but equivalent, fraction. As well as the game there are also some useful fraction equivalence demonstrators at the same site. Mark Wedell.
Fresh Baked Fractions
Compare the fractions and click on the odd one out. If you get it right, the dog gets a piece of pie. There are four levels to choose from, Easy, Medium ,Hard and Super Brain. Funbrain.
In this game from Count On you practise finding a fraction of a number. You can play it as a two-player game or a single player can play against the computer.
Name the Fraction
This is a simple activity where you are shown a shape with part of it shaded. Type the number of shaded pieces in the top box and the total number of pieces in the bottom box to name the fraction, then click the check button to see if you are right. NLVM.
Fraction of a Number
An interactive whiteboard activity from NGFL Cymru. Type in the answer to questions such as 1/2 of 8. If you're using it on an interactive whiteboard you can use the fraction wall to help you break the number down.
Fractions of a Quantity
This activity takes you step-by-step through the process of working out a fraction of a quantity. For example, to find 4/5 of 35 it will first ask you to enter the answer to 35 divided by 5, then move on to ask you what is 7 times 4. There's a numberline at the bottom to help. Mark Weddell.
In this game you have to type in the fraction of the shaded part. However, you must enter the fraction in its lowest terms, e.g. 3/4 rather than 9/12. Hellam.net.
