Our children have struggled with math concepts. Well mostly our daughters. Our son loves math. Math is something I struggle with as well....mostly in how to teach it. I have found that when our children can see, touch and really experience math concepts they learn much better. Well look no further if you are looking for a fun way to teach them the concept of fractions. I See Cards has a really great game called Fractazmic!
Fractazmic is a card game that helps you teach the concept of fractions to your children. When they think they are playing games instead of learning they will do better. SHHH don't tell them they are still "doing school" while playing this game.
The deck is divided into three different suits by colors, the 16ths are red, the 12ths are blue, and the 10ths are green. There are 60 cards total in the deck. Cards can be arranged and combined in a number of ways to make 1.
The object of this game is to create as many "hands" as possible before another player runs out of cards. A hand is cards added up to equal a whole or 1. You play until someone no longer has any cards left. The winner is the person with the most "hands".
Fractazmic cards are available for $6.95 at their website, I See Cards.com.
On their website you can even download a 30 page guide to playing the various card games.
This game was so much fun even our dog Charlie wanted in on the action!!
