Unit Fractions Cards
A set of 30 cards displaying unit fractions.
Use these flashcards in a variety of ways when teaching fractions to your students.
Some ways to use these cards:
- Have students flip over a card and draw a pictorial model.
- Have students flip over two cards and write a comparative statement using both fractions.
- Have students flip over a card and write a unit fraction that is greater than and less than the given fraction.
- Have students build a number line from 0 to 1 using some of the cards.
- For older students, flip two cards over and find the sum or difference.
These flashcards work beautifully when printed on cardstock and placed into a math center.
Use the drop-down menu to choose between the color or black and white version.
