What you should know:
Fractions are a tough skill to master; help kids get a real feel for fractions as they tap and break apart shapes to solve equations in this interactive app. Fractions App has outstanding graphics that will engage visual learners and give them solid fraction practice.
The tactile aspects of this tool will draw kids in as well—touch a circle and it breaks apart into ½, ¾, or whatever the problem calls for. Reluctant mathematicians will appreciate the hands-on application of a dry skill, while advanced students stay engaged by customizing lessons to fit their skills set. There are multiple categories and tests to select from—there's simple fraction identification, proper and improper fractions, adding, subtracting and multiplying.
Each category includes practice tests, a comprehensive slide tutorial and multiple links to related videos. The video link feature takes you to outside resources that have been vetted and chosen by the app developers. Loading the video selections can take some time and requires a fast Internet connection, but the content is top-notch. When kids create a profile (with parental supervision) they can save scores and share progress with parents or teachers.
