How to play
Record 0 and 1 on the ends of the number line.
Players each choose a differently coloured pen/pencil and then take turns to choose any two numbers from 1 to 12 inclusive to make a fraction. This fraction must be converted to a decimal by using known equivalents or an appropriate calculation, rounding to 2 decimal places.
The decimal number is then marked in the appropriate place on the numberline. If the number has already been marked by a player, the turn ends. The winner is the first player to mark 4 numbers in an unbroken line.
