A Great Collection of Simple Online Fraction Games (GCF and LCM Included)

Of the 80 blog posts I've done, it's not even close, the most popular post is 5th Grade Math Unit 4: Fractions, Decimals, and Percents (as well as its standalone counterpart). It's obvious that fractions, decimals, and percents are a major skill of great importance in the 4th and 5th grades.

This evening, in my web browsing, I came across a collection of 11 fraction games on a website called Jamit, which does software for use on most SmartBoards (since there are so many variations out there, like Prometheans, Mimios, etc.).

The games are simple, but the premise is the same. They help with fraction skills, from basic skills to multiplying and dividing fractions. My current use, as I'm in Unit 1: Factors, Multiples, Multiplication, and Division, is the game on GCF and LCM (Greatest Common Factor and Least Common Multiple).

I recommend the collection of fraction games on Jamit because they're simple, they work on a SmartBoard or similar device, and they reinforce the content effectively. Give it a look!
