**Learning Objective:**

Identify fractions as more than or less than ½ (or a given amount).

**Intended Outcome:
**Accurate identification of fractions, comparing faction values.

**Game Objective:
**To collect 5 fractions more than ½ and 5 fractions less than ½.

**Materials:**

- 2x ten-sided dice
- Paper and pen for recording

**Instructions:
**Play this game in pairs or small groups.

- Players take turns to roll two ten-sided dice.
- The smaller number is the numerator and the larger number is the denominator.
- Place the fraction made on a chart showing if it is more than, less than or equal to ½.

For example, if the numbers 8 and 1 were rolled, the fraction would be ⅛. Or, if the two numbers rolled were 2 and 3, the fraction would be ⅔.

- The first player to have 5 fractions in the less than ½ column AND 5 fractions in the more than ½ column wins.

*Hint: *A fraction wall could be a useful tool!

**Variations:**

Change the given fraction to another, for example instead of finding fractions less than and more than ½ find fractions that are less than and more than ⅓.

Increase the amount of fractions the student must collect to win.

Use decimal notation instead of fraction notation.
