Why play this game?
can be played to improve students' recognition of equivalent fractions, decimals and percentages.
There are three sets of printable cards, which you may find useful. Set A is the easiest, and set C is the hardest. Each half (top/bottom) is a stand alone set so you can combine these to form the size and difficulty that you would like.
For example, you might want to combine the bottom half of set A with the top half of set B, or all of set B with the top half of set C.
If you print double sided, then the cards will have an NRICH logo on the back. Otherwise, you can just print the first page.
Set A, Set B, Set C
