This clever math game teaches kids specifically about fractions.
There are so many good things to say about this game! We all enjoyed playing the different game variations. I love that the pizza slices give a visual to multiples of fractions. It's easy to see that 1/8 is a multiple of 1/2 and 1/9 is a multiple of 1/3 when placing the pieces on top of and next to each other. The kids really like that the pizza slices are so realistic.
There was only one downside we found while playing this game. It can sometimes be difficult to tell if a combination of pieces makes an equivalent fraction without actually doing the math or understanding multiples. Since the pieces may slide around, younger players may think certain fraction combinations are equivalent when comparing them visually.
We highly recommend Pizza Fraction Fun to families homeschooling primary and middle school students.
