Teacher Review

Squeebles Fractions is another app in the Squeebles series of apps that encourage fluency in basic math operations. As with most of these apps, young mathematicians are rewarded for successful math practice. They earn badges that are needed to unlock the game. This app in particular provides basic fraction practice to young mathematicians. 
 
Squeebles Fractions is a great introduction to fractions for primary school students and will be a nice way to reinforce skills for those who have already begun to learn fractions in an academic setting. Fun and engaging, Squeebles Fractions will help keep your children’s attention as they work out the fraction equations and eat some delicious cake too! This app focuses on the basics of fractions including modeling fractions, equivalent fractions, comparing fractions, and simple fraction addition.
 
Squeebles Fractions consists of four games:
 
A Piece of Cake:  Contains two levels, Easier and Harder.  In this game the Squeebles are at a picnic and want part of a cake.  In the easier level they ask for quarters, halves and thirds.  In the harder version the cake is split into denominations up to twelfths.  This is a great intro to fractions for younger children since they are able to simply tap each slice to count up to the right size portion without having to do any computations.
 
Tricky Pairs: Contains two levels, Easier and Harder.  Tricky Pairs requires the player to match two fractions that equal each other like 1/2 and 2/4.  This game starts to get a little more challenging and players will need to have a basic understanding of common denominators.  The easy level has 8 cards laid out to match with numbers like 4/5 and 8/10.  The harder level has 18 cards and denominations up to twelfths.
 
Think Big: Contains two levels, Easier and Harder.  Two Squeebles think of fractions.  The player needs to drag the cake to the bigger of the two fractions.  The easy version is great for beginners as it contains quarters, halves and thirds.  The harder game contains fractions up to twelfths (i.e. which is bigger 4/7 or 6/11).
 
Super Sums: Contains three levels, Easier, Medium and Harder.  Answer 10 fraction addition questions and earn a bonus for getting them all right.  The two fractions in each question of the easiest version all have the same denominator, while the hardest version requires changing the fractions to have common denominators.
