Fraction Decomposition Math Games

In this series of games, your students will learn to decompose a fraction into a sum of fractions with the same denominator in more than one way, recording each decomposition by an equation. The Fraction Decomposition learning objective — based on CCSS and state standards — delivers improved student engagement and academic performance in your classroom, as demonstrated by research. This learning objective directly references 4.NF.B.3.b as written in the common core national math standards.
