FIND GRAMMY INSTRUCTIONS

Now its Grammy's turn to hide.  She hides better than Grampy so you will be unable to see her behind the fence. When you press the <Start> button, Grammy will hide at a fractional distance between the beginning and the end of the fence.

Watch carefully as she moves behind the hedge because she will suddenly hide.

To help you find Grammy you will be given the denominator of the fraction distance where she is hiding. Grampy will help by saying "HOT" if the fraction you enter brings you closer to her. He will say "COLD" if the fraction you enter does not bring you closer to her.

When you enter a fraction, the fraction will appear on that position you entered. Fractions will be placed along the hedge to show all the positions you entered.

Pressing the <Start> button will reset the game so you can start over.

The computer will keep track of the number of times you find Grammy and the number of tries. Have fun!

The <Report> button will open a dialog box that will ask for your first and last name . The <Send> key on the dialog box will open a browser window with your report card.

See the program How to Identify Fractions for more information on numerator and denominator.
