Fractions with denominators of 100 and 1000

Purpose:

The purpose of this activity is to help your child to simplify fractions with a denominator of 100 or 1000.

Link to the Number Framework:

Place Value, Stage 7

What you need:

Game board and cards (PDF,56KB) . You can print these or make your own.
Cardboard. (Old cereal boxes are good).

What to do:

Glue the cards on to cardboard. Cut the cards, shuffle them and place in a pile between the players. Give each player a game board.
Players take turns to take a card from the pile. If the card is equivalent to a fraction on their game board, they can cross off the fraction and return the card to the bottom of the pile. If not, then the card is just returned to the bottom of the pile. The winner is the first player to cross off all the numbers on their game board.

What to expect your child to do:

Over time expect your child to become quicker at recognising the simpler form of the fractions with a denominator of 100 and 1000.

Variation:

Play Snap or Memory with the game cards, 25/100 and 250/1000 would be a pair. Use the game cards as flash cards and ask your child to name a simpler fraction.
