App Tutorial

Learn all about this app with a set of fun challenges for teachers and students.

The Fractions app lets students use a bar or circle to represent, compare, and perform operations with fractions with denominators from 1 to 100. Choose to create a bar or circle fraction and choose the total number of equal parts in the whole. Then show a fraction by filling in parts of the whole with color. Show or hide numeric labels as needed. Superimpose fractions upon each other to compare fractions or see equal parts.

The Fractions app is an open-ended educational tool, ideal for elementary classrooms and other learning environments that use laptops, iPads, or Chromebooks.

Fraction models are a key component of Bridges in Mathematics, second edition. Online preview available.
