Visually based math app is like “angry birds” for fractions

Slice Fractions is a very cute, highly visual, way to introduce fractions to students. The game sets itself apart from other apps because it has broken down the foundational knowledge that students need to understand in order to truly grasp what a fraction is. Teaching those fundamentals without the interference of words, makes this a product that could reach those students who have not understood the concept of fractions in traditional ways. The game is common core aligned for fraction concepts through third grade. Add the fact that the game presents similarly to “angry birds” and you get one heck of a bonus. As a teacher, even I found the game addicting. It would be great if there were another level or even another app – Slice Fractions 2? – to address the fraction concepts in 4th and 5th grades.

They liked the graphics and getting new hats. It isn't gender-specific which is nice. Though students didn't always realize what they were doing "fractions," they were able to explain what they did and why using fractional parts (e.g. "I needed two pieces because the two pieces together equaled the bigger one"). The app does a good job of utilizing the iPad format rather than just reproducing a fractions worksheet. Still, it is expensive for a one time use per child.

In the future I would hope the app would add actual numbered fractions so that the students could put a number to the object. My students basically had to figure out what to do being that there were no instructions.,
