Suggested Lessons or :

  • Drag and drop fraction bars from the sides. Drag a "whole" bar first to find how many of each fraction bars you need to make a whole.
  • Investigate equivalent fractions (e.g., 1/2 = 4/8).
  • Add different fractions to make a whole (e.g., 1/2 + 1/4 + 2/8 = 1)
  • Make and compare different fractions with the same or different denominators.
  • You can bring in as many fraction bars as you want to make improper fractions and then covert them into mixed numbers (e.g., 9/5 = 1 + 4/5).
  • Press the reset to restart.
