Each of the 49 Fraction Bars Playing Cards is colorcoded to correspond to a Fraction Bar and contains a fraction and its name. The colored numeral on the playing card indicates the number of shaded parts and the total number of parts in the corresponding bar and provides for a gradual transition from the Fraction Bars model to the use of fraction symbols. As with the decks of bars, it helps to letter the back of the cards for sorting purposes, one deck with letter A, another with B, etc.
