How I Use It
I have used it to develop the concept of fractions, equivalent fractions, fractions comparisons and operations with fractions using circular and line models and games. The games are very useful for engaging the students at the beginning of a lesson or at the end to extend practice. There are related worksheets for practice and the mathematical academic vocabulary is aligned to the Common Core. The site has a section to download concepts as Microsoft Power point Slide or Adobe Reader Documents.
Teacher and students determine the pace of the lesson and games. The drop down menu on top helps to choose the fraction skill and model. The interactive boxes for the operations allow everybody to view the operations steps when a lesson is presented or when students practice with guidance. Students can take turns while problems are solved or work individually on their laptops. There is reading support for instructions and procedures. The website might improve if real life word problems were included in it.
