How I Use It
This is a great resource for your math class. This app allows students to explore the connections between fractions, decimals, and percent through the use of manipulatives. The students can also draw on the white space next to the manipulatives and save the work as an image.
My Take
I really like this app. Its hard to visualize how 1/2, 0.5, and 5% all connect in your head. This app gives you something to look at and manipulate. Students will get the opportunity to practice the identification of the three. Students can also use the manipulatives and white space area to explore adding and subtracting simple fractions, decimals, and percents.
