CH 1: Fraction Math Match

A fun and addictive fraction memory game. By playing the game Fraction Math Match, students come to appreciate various aspects of fraction representation including visual, geometric, numeric, and artistic.

CH 2: Fraction Circles

This multi-purpose app helps students represent fractions using the first model students encounter in their fraction journey: the circular area model. The *Fraction Circles *App helps students visualize fraction magnitude and use the area representations to make sense of fraction operations.

CH 3: What's the unit?

Is a half larger than a third ? The answer is yes provided the implied whole or unit is the same for both fractions. But what if the units are different? The *What’s the Unit?* App helps students understand the necessity of knowing the unit when defining a fraction.

CH 4: can you see it?

Visualizing fraction equivalence can be a challenge for students. To many, “multiplying up and down by 2” means *doubling* the fraction value. Using circular or bar models, the *Can You See It? *App helps students *see *with their eyes and mind that equivalent fractions are truly equal. A powerful springboard to the formal equivalence algorithm!

CH 5: On the Number Line!

Understanding fractions as numbers, represented by points on a line, can be challenging for some students.

The See it on the Line! App enables students to manipulate and compare two or three fractions on the number line with ease and understanding.

CH 6: Sweet Multiplication

Visualizing fraction multiplication in a realistic context empowers students to appreciate the meaning of fraction multiplication and understand the logic behind the algorithmic procedure. The Sweet Multiplication app offers multiplication situations thatare realistic, easy to understand, and fun to solve.
