Would your
students be able to create and order fractions if doing so meant they
could help Cleo the Cat escape from the spooky and dangerous Fraction
Manor?

In
this fun problem solving game, students collect cards as they journey
through three levels of Dr. Fractionstein's castle. Watch out for the monsters! They will try to prevent students from finding all of the cards. When each
level is completed they are presented with a series of math puzzles. The
cards that the students have collected contain digits that must be
arranged into a series of fractions in a given order. The puzzles
increase in difficulty at each
level.

Escape from Fraction Manor addresses both the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics and the Principles and Standards for School Mathematics.

**Common Core State Standards for Mathematics**

4.NF.2: Compare two fractions
with different numerators and different denominators, e.g., by
creating common denominators or numerators, or by comparing to a
benchmark fraction such as 1/2. Recognize that comparisons are valid
only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the
results of comparisons with symbols >, =, or <, and justify the
conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.

**Principles and Standards for School Mathematics**

Math - grades Grades 3-5: recognize and generate equivalent forms of commonly used fractions, decimals, and percents

Math - grades Grades 6-8: compare and order fractions, decimals and percents efficiently and find their approximate locations on a number line

Thank you soo much doing doing this project with my student
