Are you looking to build your child’s fraction sense and skills? Learning fractions can be challenging. I mean, your child has to understand what they are, what they represent, how they are used, what they mean compared to other fractions or whole numbers. Without the concept of fraction comparison and ordering “clicking” for your child, they may find themselves struggling to catch on. These fraction comparison games can help them if they are struggling or if they need more practice.
When you stop to think about it, fractions can be super confusing. Without visually seeing how fractions compare to a whole or how they compare to other fractions, it is hard to just “get it”. Learning how fractions compare to each other builds a child’s fraction sense, and this is exactly what these games help do. Challenge kids and strengthen their fraction sense with this comparing fractions game.
Kids will learn various tips for comparing fractions like:
- Using benchmarks fractions to help compare two fractions.
- Comparing fractions visually to how they are apart from a ½.
- How in fractions, bigger value doesn’t necessarily mean a bigger number.
