In this interactive game, students use a bar model to solve fraction division word problems. Specifically, they determine how long it takes a sloth to climb down a tree, assuming a steady rate of descent. The game, which can be played in English or Spanish, includes a randomization feature that allows students to practice solving the same problem using different values. The accompanying classroom activity suggests ways that teachers can integrate this game into the classroom. This resource is part of the Math at the Core: Middle School Collection.
