# Matching Cards Game

By: helpingwithmath.com

Match equivalent fractions shown on number cards in this simple online exercise.

Nine fractions are shown inside dotted outlines, while to one side are placed nine number cards, each also marked with a fraction. You simply need to match the equivalent fractions inside the dotted outlines to ones on the cards and place them accordingly.

Equivalent fractions are fractions that, while showing different numbers, are the same in proportion. So, for example, 2/3 is the same size of fraction as 6/9. Learning about equivalent fractions is a good introduction to the subject, and this is a suitable activity for third and fourth graders.

The cards can only be placed on the dotted outline that they match – so see if you can get all nine correct.
