Description

Help a boy to hit a bullseye with his paper plane. Build two fractions that add up to a target number up to two. Complete the numerators of both fractions (one may have a fixed denominator). For example, work out how many thirds and how many sixths can be added together to total 4/3. Look at fraction bars and a number line to compare the two fractions and their total. This learning object is one in a series of seven objects.

Key learning objectives

•Students explore the effect of changing the numerator and denominator on the type and size of a fraction.
•Students identify pairs of fractions that add up to a target number.
•Students find equivalent fractions.
Educational value
•Helps students to relate numerators and denominators to the type and size of a fraction.
•Provides a framework for students to make and test predictions.
•Features a tool that dynamically generates the position of fractions and totals on a number line.
•Prompts students to find and identify equivalent fractions.
•Includes an onscreen notebook that provides a record of the student's work.
•Provides an option to print each set of equations in the student's onscreen notebook.

Error

jmbird33

There are a couple of errors that need of be addressed.
- one of the questions asks to solve 4/5 but gives you a whole with addition. This error stops you from getting any further.
- allows you to add fractions with different denominators. Not great for students that have not mastered the understanding that you must have common denominators.

It is not a great learning tool, but would probably be good as an activity for consolidating understanding.

great

this should be a good app for the kids learning fractions but would have liked it for my kids iPods :( as the iPad belongs to my son with autism!

It doesn't work properly THERES AN ERROR

This app would be great but when you get to a certain level the bottom numbers won't change and it's not even locked in the right number but this app would have been good...
