4 Dice: Fraction Games is a math app for middle school and upper elementary students.
For teachers, one major benefit of using this game is that it provides immediate feedback of their students' progress via email.
Engaging Students Beyond the App
The 4 Dice App comes with a printable game sheet that makes it easy to prepare lessons and involve the whole class.
Common Core Mathematical Standard
4.NF Extend understanding of fractional equivalence and ordering.
5.NF Use equivalent fractions as a strategy to add and subtract fractions.
6 NF Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division to divide fractions by fractions.
Challenging App by M.L.I.S - Version 1.4 - Apr 14, 2013
"This is a fantastic app for 4th grade students and up. It reviews the procedures for adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing fractions in the instructions and gives the users challenges. The best part is probably the ability for users to challenge their friends and connect using different devices close by!"
What's New in Version 2.0
- Complete new design and graphics
- Multiplayer mode with up to 5 devices using wifi!!
this is an excellent game for young students. It helps to develop math & logic capability to some extent. The game is touch and challenging even to a teacher. At first, ones may think it's quite easy to play as all the pieces are there and they just have to put them to the right place, but they would end up hours with countless number of trial n error attempts. Since there is no certain formula to solve, therefore a proper way to approach the problems is very important. The more my students play it, the more likely they will develop themselves a good strategy to approach and solve it. This kind of game has been proven helpful for maths skill development.
Mostly good, but...
This app is easy to use and a great way to build skills. There is one flaw, however. Students who come up with equivalent answers but different denominators are told the answer is wrong. For instance, the game tells you -5/4 is not equal to -10/8. Clearly it is, but this was confusing and frustrating to my students who would have gotten this right on an assessment. It is great as an option for practice, but students who value scores for their hard work get frustrated when they are penalized, in my opinion, unfairly. Someone needs to think a little more outside the box.
My brain likes it
It's a bit hard to gather up to 5 grown up brains at the same time to play something together, it's even harder for those brains to solve a single problem in this fraction game. But when we were on, it's a great and engaging experience. B/c there is no fixed way to find the right combination of the dices your brain has to work constantly until you hit the eureka moment, which is a good exercise for the brain.
