I See Cards brings Funtime to Mathtime with Fractazmic TOS Crew Review

Pin It Now!
    Math seems to be the subject my youngest son Taylor struggles to learn and the subject I struggle most to Teach. I am fluent enough in Math to get by but do not enjoy it in the least. So any opportunity to make Math fun for all of us is a blessing.  Recently some of us from the TOS Crew were given the opportunity to review Fractazmic  from I See Cards. This handy little game is perfect for on the go Math fun as well as in the classroom. We find ourselves at many DR. appointments and this little game has been a blessing to pass the time away as it fits neatly in my purse.

   Geared towards children in the 1st-8th grade range, Fractazmic  is a comprehensive interactive fun lesson in fractions. There are several ways to play, our favorite is the one that is along the lines of Rummy. I grew up playing Rummy with my Grandma and her friend Elsa from England, and my kids have grown up playing Rummy with my Grandma and my Mom. I think this helped the boys catch on quickly since they were familiar with that game first.  Fractazmic teaches Fractions, Numbers and Measurement, all while having a great time playing cards.

      The Fractazmic set of cards is made from sturdy material and is bright and colorful.
Fractazmic Decks Include:

•60 Math Learning Cards

•Each card clearly numbered

•Each card clearly labeled with the fraction and reinforcing graphic.

The deck of cards are divided into three different sets. These sets are:

•The Twelfths suit – Blue

•The Tenths suit – Green

•The Sixteenths suit – Red

How to Play

Fractazmic is a 2-4 player game that uses math and language skills. The object of Fractazmic trap is to gather as many hands as possible before the first player runs out of cards. Hands are captured by either (1) playing a card that brings the sum of all cards thrown to 1 or (2) forcing the next player to throw a card that brings the sum to greater than 1. If any of these events occur – the player captures the round and is the first to start the next round.
