I love math games! Part of the advantage of games over worksheets is that they are repeatable. Whether using dice, cards, or a spinner, the problems are randomized, so each time the game is played it’s a little different. While creating digital versions of many of my resources, the ability to “shuffle” and randomize the cards used for a game has eluded me. Until now! I just added a digital version of my Equivalent Fractions Capture 4 freebie, which is played with a deck of cards showing various representations for fractions. After figuring out how to “shuffle” the cards, I made a little video to include in the resource showing how to do it.

Now that I’ve figured out how to shuffle digital cards, look for more resource updates in the near future! Remember to check your TPT Purchases for updated products and download the newest version!

    Thanks, Donna! I am excited about the digital version. Question about the fraction capture game. If each child has their own copy, how do they play against another student? Thanks!

      You have to assign a copy to Player 1, who will then give Edit access to Player 2. So, basically, two students on one copy.

      Something else I do is I will make duplicates of the game in the slide deck. Then I will assign students to a number on the slide. So Stacy and Donna are playing on Slide 4, Christa and Invisible person are playing on slide 5. I like this because I can watch them playing on the grid view and intervene if necessary.
