# Multiplying Mixed Numbers Bingo

Master the ability to multiply mixed numbers with a whole-class bingo game.

## Practice How to Multiply Mixed Numbers with a Bingo Game!

Learning how to multiply mixed numbers involves a great amount of practice and precision. Students use their important multiplication facts to convert mixed numbers to improper fractions to be able to determine products. If you are looking for a whole-class activity for your students to practice this fractional computation skill, look no further!

To play, distribute one card to each student and a set of counters to cover the game board spaces. Display one of the calling cards to the students and encourage them to find the product. Once students find the correct answer on their bingo card, they must cover it with a counting chip or marker. The first student to get a bingo configuration on their card wins!

Through this activity, students will show they can multiply mixed numbers and fractions and represent the answer in simplest form.

## Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding

A team of dedicated, experienced educators created this resource to support your math lessons.

In addition to individual student work time, use this bingo game to enhance learning through guided math groups, whole class lessons, or remote learning assignments.

If you have a mixture of above and below-level learners, check out these suggestions for keeping students on track with the concepts:

### 🆘 Support Struggling Students

Help students who need help understanding the concepts by providing a multiplication chart to help with basic facts. Additionally, consider giving students some problems to solve before the game to provide them with more time to calculate each product.

### ➕ Challenge Fast Finishers

If there are students who need an additional challenge, encourage them to write an equivalent value for each mixed number on their board.
