Unit fractions of a quantity

# PONG game to practice'Unit fractions of a quantity' for 5th grade

### Calculate unit fractions of quantities

A unit fraction is a fraction where the numerator is 1 and the denominator is a positive integer. For example, 1/2, 1/3, and 1/4 are all unit fractions.

To identify a unit fraction, you need to look at the numerator of the fraction. If the numerator is 1, then it is a unit fraction.

To calculate unit fractions of a quantity, you divide the quantity by the denominator of the unit fraction.

Example 1: 1/8th of 64

1/8 x 64 = (1 x 64) ÷ 8 = 64/8 = 8

Example 2: 1/6th of 24

1/6 x 24 = (1 x 24) ÷ 6 = 24/6 = 4

With our Pong math game you will be practicing the topic "Unit fractions of a quantity" from 5th grade / Fractions / Fractions of a quantity. The math in this game consists of 16 questions that ask you to use division to find unit fraction multiples of quantities.

This is our version of the classic early computer game "Breakout" (itself a development of the even earlier "Pong" game - we prefer that name) where a player controls a bar that knocks a ball or puck around the screen.

In our version of Pong/Breakout, there are 3 types of bricks for you to break: green bricks are worth just 2 points; yellow bricks are worth a whopping 50 points; breaking white bricks, which are worth 10 points, wins you a math question from the topic you have chosen.

You start with 5 lives. If the ball goes below the paddle, you lose a life and 200 points. The game ends when you answer all 10 questions or lose all your lives.

### Notes

1. This version of Pong is a one player game to learn or revise math
2. Our PONG for math is a scoring game - play a few times and set a personal best score!
3. Addictive! You may end up trying to avoid the white bricks so that you can play for longer...
