What's New in Version 1.1
Compatibility for iPhone.
One of the best ever
Wow, this is a great app which is perfect for my family. It is fun, interesting, creative, and motivates you to continue to the next level. And lets not forget its doing some amazing teaching of fractions. It's approachable enough (great graphics, too) that my 4 year old enjoys playing. I agree with other reviewer: I hope they come out with a level 2 game.
A fun and engaging way to teach a difficult concept!
Finally, I have found an app that makes learning fractions fun for my kids. Colorful graphics, in the form of tropical fruit and birds, keep young learners’ attention as they move through progressively challenging problems to solve. This is the best app I have found to teach fraction basics to children.
