1. How to Play Fractions Bingo

Bingo Fractions can be played in the classroom or at home. You can start in a very simple way. Once the bingo cards have been downloaded and printed, you can consider laminating them so you can use them again and again, or use them only once if you prefer. You can also use them multiple times using beans or pebbles instead of marking off the numbers.

2. Preparation and Materials

  1. Print the Bingo Cards [PDF Document]. Use the password to open the PDF file.
  2. Cut the playing cards splitting the printed pages in two.
  3. Ask each child to choose one bingo card.
  4. Print the Fractions calling charts [PDF Document] that replace the balls cage in the traditional game. You will find several different fractions there. These specific sequences of operations were designed to delay the attainment of the bingo pattern for all the bingo cards. With a truely random selection of operations it is possible and frequent that the game ends too quickly.
  5. Select the bingo simulated cage/list you will use.
  6. Call each fraction in order. Children should try to find the number on their cards. The child can only cross out the called fraction once, no matter how many times it is repeated on the cardboard.
  7. When the children have the answer on their sheet, they mark it with an X or place a token on the correct box.
  8. The first player to have five correct answers is the winner.
  9. The three numbers under each card represent the earliest turn that particular card has a bingo pattern if the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd calling lists are used respectively. This allows teachers and parents to quickly check whether it is possible for the child to have completed the card.
