Awesome! Fractions are fun!!! (FracTazmic Review)


We received a set of  FracTazmic Cards and loved them! This is just one of the games from I See Cards.  This set of cards is $6.95.  They can also be  purchased in larger quantities for schools or co-ops.  This game is recommended for 1st-8th grade.  Allie LOVED this one.  She’s in 7th grade this year. It is recommended for 2-4 players.  Allie enjoyed the game so much she would play it by herself too!!!

Sixty high quality cards are divided into 3 “suits”

  • The Twelfths suit – Blue
  • The Tenths suit – Green
  • The Sixteenths suit – Red

The object of the games is to make one whole from one “suit” and lay that down as a finished pile.  Who ever has the most finished piles when a player runs out of cards is the winner.

The graphics of each card are great!  Not only are they cute, but they are clues about your fractions!  In the twelfths suit the graphic is eggs. The number of eggs in the carton corresponds to your fraction!  The tenths suit graphic is liquid and the sixteenths suit graphic is measurements.  Not only does this help in understanding fraction equivalents, but it shows real world use of these fractions.

Allie  says “It is a very fun game to play.  It has cute pictures that keeps you interested.  The game helps you remember your fractions.  I love how you can count on the cards when you are beginning!  Now I know them and don’t have to use the pictures to help!”

“FracTazmic is a comprehensive interactive fun lesson in fractions that gives your child unlimited practice at their individual level. Each brightly colored card displays fractions, along with eye catching graphics, to ensure reinforcement. Players will quickly identify the fractions on their cards and calculate their way to fun and learning! Fractazmic teaches fractions, numbers and measurement.”

There is a place on their website of play a speed game of FracTazmic to try and win a free game! Also, here are links for game variations: FracTamic Rummy, Trap and a game booklet of variations.

Here’s what others at the TOS Crew are saying about FracTazmic!
