Teacher Review for Refraction

I thought the game was great for teaching refraction, but had nothing to do with "fractions" as advertised. It was great for learning logic and being able to use angles, which we teach in our geometry unit, but I was looking for a game for fractions.

How I Use It
I reviewed this looking for support in teaching fractions. What it did was teach bending and angles, great for geometry lessons, but not for fraction lessons.
My Take
Its easy enough that kids could do it on their own and would do it on their own. It seems to be addictive so kids would probably use it again and again. It teaches logic and geometry. I'd use it as fast finisher and as a motivator for slower kids to get their work completed. I might also use it as a reward for good behavior in the classroom.
