In this interactive, use logic to solve riddles involving a wallaby jumping contest. Add two consecutive jumps and place them on a number line, finding equivalent fractions and common denominators to do so. Backward jumps represent negative numbers, and forward jumps represent positive numbers. Numbers are randomized so that riddles can be answered and wallabies placed on the number line multiple times. The accompanying classroom activity includes a fraction/decimal concept review and a response sheet handout to support the online work. This resource is part of the Math at the Core: Middle School Collection.
