# Fraction Formula game by Educational Insights Product Review

This post may contain affiliate links, view our disclosure policy for details.

Fraction Formula by Educational Insights is a fun competitive math game geared towards children ages 8+. It comes with four cylinders, 52 Fizzy fraction tiles, 52 fraction game cards, and 20 scoring cards. This can be used as a game or  manipulative to help teach fractional values and equivalencies. I love the chemistry-set inspired look with the graduated cylinders!

The object of the game is to build your cylinder full with the Fizzy tiles and not go over 1 whole. Each player receives a cylinder, and then in turn draws a Fraction Formula fractions card. The player must then find the corresponding Fizzy tile and drop it into their cylinder. But be careful- if you add all of the fractions up and they equal more than 1 you lose the game! A player must drop the fraction tile into their cylinder once they have picked up the fractions card. If a player wishes to stay put and not add any more Fizzy tiles they can simply say Hold, and wait for the next player to make their move.

My children are too young for this game obviously, but as I was setting it up for my husband and I to play my youngest climbed up on the table and started filling the cylinders with the tiles! It was too cute not to show! My husband is excited to have this game as a new addition for his classroom this next school year!

The instructional guide comes in not only English, but also Spanish, French, and German as well. Since you only need to read fractions and not words to play this game- it can be used in a multi-language group! I love that! In addition to the fun of using it as a game it can additionally be used as a hands-on manipulative. You can set two (or more!) cylinders up side by side and fill each corresponding cylinder with a specified fractional amount. For example, in the first cylinder you can place the 1/2 tile and ask the student to fill his/her cylinder with tiles that equal 1/2. It is a great hands-on and visual learning manipulative that will really help fill the math learning void!

I wish that I had this game when I was in school to help me learn fractions! I am a visual and hands-on learner and this game certainly would have helped me learn easier than by just seeing it on paper. My husband (an elementary teacher) and I both highly recommend this game! Although you are basing all of your fractions off of the number 1, this game can be vital in helping your children not only learn fractions, but also to enjoy them as well. If you are a teacher and deal with fractions in your class this game is a must have for your activity centers!!

Disclosure: I was not compensated for this review. I received some rocks to play with! All opinions are 100% mine.
