Do you know the secret to learning fractions? Pie.
Yes, pie! eeBoo’s Make A Pie Spinner Game helps children develop the concepts of fractions and equivalents in a much better way than complicated mathematical graphs. Instead, players are able to “handle” fractions in the form of pie slices and physically see how they add to the total – or in this case, the rest of a pie. This makes the concept more understandable, as children can see and touch the game pieces, and for example see that two quarters make a half.
To make a pie, you’ll have to spin the included spinner and gather pie slices on your tin. Pies of various flavours are divided in to halves, thirds, fourths, eights and sixteenths, and your child takes the piece as indicated on the spinner. If the spinner lands on “Take A Piece!”, your child takes a pie piece from another player.
However, if their pie ends up “stymied” – meaning that the pie cannot be finished with the fractions available – then a new pie must be started, until the first becomes un-stymied when a piece is taken away. Then it’s time to try and fill in the first pie! It’s sort of like a food fight…but your kids are having a tonne of fun and learning at the same time!
