The game covers the following fraction concepts:
+ Part-whole partitioning
+ Numerator / Denominator notation
+ Equivalent fractions
+ Fraction ordering
+ Subtracting fractions from 1
Teachers: Slice Fractions is based on the following Common Core concepts: (2.G.A.2) (2.G.A.3) (3.NF.A.1) (3.NF.A.3) (4.NF.A.1) (4.NF.A.2) (4.NF.B.3)

My three year old loves this game even though he doesn't understand the concept of fractions. He finished the game, with help of course, in one day and we keep starting him back at the beginning because he wants to play it all the time. What I like about this game, as a parent, besides the teaching of fractions, is that you can keep starting over on each level until you master it, AND after so many tries, the game will give you hints as to how to complete the level. It also teaches how to strategize. My husband and I had trouble with some levels too, which made it fun! So even though this game is advanced for my little guy, I like that I can expose him to fractions early and show him how FUN math can be.
Awesome, more levels or level editor plz
I wasn't convinced my 5yo would get this, and i'm sure she didn't get all of it, but she got to the end with very little help and she was very proud. I do think the concepts require some voice narration or at the very least do not auto-advance upon level completion so kids, happy with the new hat, pay some attention the concept they just mastered
Please make more levels or a level editor, then take my money.
I've recommended this app to five people so far. Add this stuff, and I'll make it 50.
Fantastic tactile learning app
My five year old has played all the way through in one sitting. He primarily needed help with the physics aspect of the game. When he got to the actual math notation of fractions he sometimes needed me to present the problem orally, but still came up with the solutions on his own. Several times his solution was not mine, but it still worked.
I am so impressed with this game that I plan on checking out other educational apps by these developers.
