In this millionaire game, students will practice multiplying fractions and writing the answer in simplest form.
You can play this game alone, with a friend, or in two teams. This game is a multi-player game that can be played on computers, Promethean boards, smart boards, iPads, and other tablets. You do not need to install an app to play this game on the iPad. Have fun evaluating algebraic expressions!
The game is based on the following Common Core Math Standards:
Interpret the product (a/b) × q as a parts of a partition of q
into b equal parts; equivalently, as the result of a sequence of
operations a × q ÷ b. For example, use a visual fraction model to
show (2/3) × 4 = 8/3, and create a story context for this equation. Do
the same with (2/3) × (4/5) = 8/15. (In general, (a/b) × (c/d) = ac/bd.)
Interpret multiplication as scaling (resizing), by:
Comparing the size of a product to the size of one factor on
the basis of the size of the other factor, without performing the
Explaining why multiplying a given number by a fraction greater
than 1 results in a product greater than the given number
(recognizing multiplication by whole numbers greater than 1 as
a familiar case); explaining why multiplying a given number by
a fraction less than 1 results in a product smaller than the given
number; and relating the principle of fraction equivalence a/b =
(n×a)/(n×b) to the effect of multiplying a/b by 1.
