How to Play: 

  • Choose a player to give the cards a good shuffle and then deal the cards face down in equal rows in the middle of the players.
  • The first player turns over any two cards one at at time, trying to match a fraction card with a number line card of the same value.   If the two cards are a match (as pictured below), the player picks up the cards and puts them in their discard pile next to them.
  • If Player 1 turns over a matching pair of cards, their turn continues repeats the process by turning over two more cards. 
  • The player's turn ends when the two flipped cards are not a match.
  • Player two follows the same procedure.
  • The game is over after all the cards have been picked up and placed in the players' discard piles.
  • Each player counts the number of cards in their discard pile. 
  • The winner is the player with the most cards!
