Students use numbers to create fractions, and they collect dirt and jewels by identifying the fraction on a number line. Students need to understand improper and equivalent fractions to be successful at this game. For instance, it will be helpful to realize that 7/4 = 1.75, which occurs just to the left of 2 on the number line, and students must realize that 9/3 = 3/1 and that both occur at the same point.
