How I Use It
This app would be a good tool to use to reinforce and practice comparing, adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing fractions. Teachers would need to model how to use this app first as it was a little confusing. It is very basic and does not offer any audio or instructions if you get the problem wrong. It does show you the correct answer though.
My Take
While this app does help reinforce fraction learning it is very basic and not very appealing to students. I would consider using it to help my students better understand the concept and practice. However I would not use this on a regular basis as it has no audio, doesn't really offer any instructions and doesn't help the students if they really don't understand the process.
