Each student has one or more cards which contain the answer to an arithmetic operation involving fractions and an expression involving fractions. One student begins by stating their expression and all the others simplify it to see who has the correct answer. The student with the correct answer then gives the next problem. The game continues until the answer returns to the first student.

The students enjoy this activity. I have run off 12 sets on card stock and cut them apart. I keep them in sandwich bags which are then placed in a large ziplock bag. My groups are 3 or 4 students. For groups of 3, each student has 3 cards and the student will the ** starts. For groups of 4 they each have 2 and the remaining card is the one that is starts the process.
It is not hard to create these cards.
I actually typically shy away from games in class, but I'm sure it's helpful to have students solving problems in the context of a game. I like that this game is designed in such a way that all the students are engaged in problem solving the entire game. I'll definitely try this one.
I love this game because it is so adaptable. It can be used with any type of problem from addition through calculus.
