## Fractions Really Add-Up

This is a fraction game between two students using a deck of cards. First, remove all jokers and face cards. Explain that the aces equal the number one. Place the remaining cards face down (still in the deck) between the two players.

The first player chooses the top card. This card becomes his denominator. The second card he chooses becomes the numerator. Then, player number two chooses a denominator and a numerator. The players continue to take turns and record their fractions until they add up to one whole or over one whole. This total gives them 5 points. The first player to reach 15 points wins.
