Simplifying Fractions Interactive Game Heritage percent circle Power point presentation My Strengths My Goals IN THIS LESSON WE SIMPLIFIED FACTIONS USING OUR HAND HELD CALCULATORS AND OUR OVER HEAD. WE FOUND THE GREATEST COMMON FACTOR BY MULTIPLYING THE NUMBERS THAT THE CALCULATOR GAVE US WHEN SIMPLIFYING THE FRACTION THE CALCULATOR GAVE US. FINALLY WE WERE ABLE TO COMPLETE THIS SKILL ON OUR OWN USING TECHNOLOGY TO CHECK OUR WORK INSTEAD OF USING IT TO HELP US TO DO OUR WORK. http://www.shodor.org/interactivate/activities/ At the Project Interactivate website by The Shodor Education Foundation, a game I found to be very helpful was called: Baseball Multiplication The Way to Play To play this game you will need a baseball multiplication game mat. 2 six –sided dice 4 pennies a calculator 2 players or 2 teams .The object of this game is to score the most runs in a 3-inning game. At start of inning the batter puts a penny on home plate. The pitcher rolls the dice and the batter multiplies the numbers rolled gives answer and pitcher checks it on calculator. If the answer correct the batter looks on the score table and moves how many times it says to. Three strikes makes a out if you get out the other person rolls. The player that has the most runs at the end wins. Why it Help This game help me with my math multiplication skills. This game helped me get better at doing the facts in my head. This is easier then a work sheet because its fun and you wanted to win so you had to work hard to win and get the facts right. This game was the best and it helped me a lot and I think it will help you also.
