Dare to Share Fairly is a visual math tool for children who are learning how to divide larger numbers. Children use place value blocks to demonstrate fair sharing. The standard division algorithm is presented for comparison.
Overall, I believe that this app offers important content for students at around third grade. The common core standards that relate to this app hit the third grade range, and focus on the ability to navigate and understand division. I appreciate the ability that the teacher has to select and personalize the levels for each student as well. This allows for the teacher to use scaffolding and give the students problems in their individual zone of proximal development. However, I feel that there are issues with the instructions for the app. Personally, I had a difficult time understanding the purposes of the boxes for the solutions. This would most likely then be very difficult for students to understand and use. With more instruction, this app would prove useful in theclassroom in division instruction.
