Thinking Blocks Fractions teaches children how to model and solve word problems involving fractions and whole numbers. In this interactive tutorial, children are introduced to 6 problem solving models. The models help children organize information and visualize number relationships. While Thinking Blocks Fractions may be used with any elementary math program, it is ideal for children who are learning model drawing strategies found in math books from Singapore. Thinking Blocks Fractions is best suited for children, ages 10+.
A drawing tool appears during the final problem solving step making it possible to label blocks and write out calculations.

Fraction Word Problems Made Easy
This is a terrific app that shows children how to solve fraction problems visually. None of my 120+ students have encountered the error mentioned in the last review. It must be very unusual. Report the error directly to the developer. I've corresponded with Math Playground about the web version in the past and the developer is very responsive.
It's a very useful app on my classroom! Extremely helpful in bringing conceptual understanding to students. Thank you for creating this.
So I'm nine and I know what models are so I get the game to study for our huge test and I get the paper and there is mistakes everywhere.
