A fun and innovative game that practices fraction addition. The Fraction Action game develops number sense with fractions. Fraction cards combine to add to one. Cards are rotated to show a common denominator.
The Fraction Bar Print-and-Play is a free download based on Fraction Action designed to build fluency in fractions.
Fraction Assistant is a manipulative to help students understand fraction addition and subtraction. Fraction strips slide to show a common denominator. Free lesson plans support its use in the classroom.
Fraction videos help to learn fractions and fraction addition.
Multy Facty is an innovative game designed to build number sense and multiplication fluency. Use Multy Facty to spark meaningful classroom discussion about multiplication.
Factor Cards match to multiples, building an array. Multiple Cards display possible arrays.
This new range of materials answers the need for engaging activities that develop fluency and conceptual understanding.
With the free Multiplication print-and-play resource students organise the multiplication, array representation and results in different ways to develop fluency.
The Multy Facty Poster displays a multiplication table using the arrays from the Multy Facty multiple cards. A great classroom resource.

St Joseph's Morrinsville
Fantastic game, builds solid knowledge and is riveting at the same time. The children loved the game and begged me to play it again the following days. For a resource to be so well loved and liked in a short period of time is fantastic.
This has been the most helpful video to date. I will be subscribing and am feeling much more optimistic about my stats class (my weakest area). Thank you!!!
