This is part one of a four-part E-example from the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics that uses games to foster mathematical communication as students explain and justify their moves to one another. This part contains an interactive version of a game that can be used in the classroom to support students' learning about fractions. By working on this activity, students have opportunities to think about how fractions are related to a unit whole, compare fractional parts of a whole, and find equivalent fractions. E-examples are selected from the electronic version of the Principles and Standards for School Mathematics (PSSM). Less
