Clara Fraction’s Ice Cream Shop is a fun game in which students have to fulfill customer ice cream orders. Easier said than done! These customers are different from typical ice cream customers and make their orders using improper fractions. You must convert the improper fractions into mixed numbers and apply the correct scoops to each ice cream cone. Make as much money as possible in five minutes. Be careful though. If you fail to fulfill an order correctly, it will cost you \$2.00. Clara Fraction is a fantastic way to help students visualize mixed numbers and improper fractions and is one of the only games on the internet that allows students to practice these skills in real-life (well, sort of) scenarios.

From a User:

"This game is really good at improving your improper fraction skills. It has you on a time limit of 5 minutes to gather as much money as possible. The main reason it is entertaining, is because you are battling yourself to achieve high scores. I would recommend this game for people who are practicing on their improper fractions."
