    How to Use the Interactive Figure 

    First Player

    • Click on one or more blue markers along the tracks so that all the markers moved add to the total amount shown in the fraction box.
    • Click on Finish Move when done.
    • If the numbers above the markers correctly add to the fraction shown on the box, the next player can take a turn.
    • Otherwise, the game will return an error message. An outline of the markers' original positions will be visible, and the player may adjust the markers and click on Finish Move again.
    • Players who cannot complete their turn may click on the Pass button.

     Second Player 

    •     Follows the same rules using the red markers.

     The first player to move all his or her markers to the right side of the Fraction Track board wins!
