# Mixed Number Bingo

My class has been working on fractions for what seems like forever. I was dreaming up ways to practice converting improper fractions to mixed numbers, and this Mixed Number Bingo game was born!

I introduced the game in my small group rotations during math workshop. This worked well because I loosely group by high, middle, and low. My students all surprised me, though, and TOOK OFF playing this game! They had previous experience converting improper fractions to mixed numbers, but were having trouble remembering the steps. Having a fast paced game helped many of my slower workers get into a groove!

We had a blast racing through the conversions in order to get the bingo boards filled in. One student only had a few spots filled in on their board. They exclaimed, “Wow, I did all of those math problems without getting bingo!” Another kid responded, “It’s just Mrs. L’s secret plot to grow our brains, by making math fun so we don’t even notice!”

Yep, that’s exactly it.
