Slice Fractions is loaded with fun gaming elements, with a style similar to the super popular game Cut The Rope. We love this app because it is truly designed on great gaming and educational content principles. Kids will not only enjoy playing the game, but will truly be engaged in rigorous problem solving with fractions.   Slice Fractions reinforces many fraction concepts by challenging kids to slice ice and rocks into different fractional parts, so that the pieces fall and clear a path for the Mastodon. Children won’t necessarily be practicing fractions in a way that will help them in tests or with worksheets but they will be developing a conceptual knowledge of fractions that is, arguably, more important.

The content is great and will really help you home school your child on this topic. It is is not as child-friendly in appearance as other educational apps you might have used but it is clear and well-designed. It contains a 43-slide lesson on adding and subtracting fractions that you can go through slide by slide (this is really good). To test your child’s understanding, there are a questions section and a challenge section. Due to its straight forward and age-neutral approach, this app is also useful for parents whose math skills might be a little too rusty to help children confidently. You should also check out the rest of the app too as it covers some other fraction-based topics just as well as this one. Of particular relevance to this topic is that of equivalent fractions.

When children play this game, they are challenged to figure out missing numbers before they can arrive to an answer.  The game will also help your child to understand the basic concept in math. King of Maths is regarded as one of the best free math apps because it was developed to improve the mathematical knowledge of children in elementary schools.

This is a free app with simple multiple-choice quiz where a player’s progress is shown on a Hopscotch board. A correct answer advances the player and an incorrect one drops them back. Interestingly, answers that give a correct fraction but not one in its simplest form, leave players stationery which is making the most of the game’s theme. Multiple-choice quizzes are good for practise after the initial stages of learning as the limited number of answers mean that children can concentrate on general principles rather than arithmetic. You will want to provide a later exercise with more open-ended answer mechanics, though.

This free app is a selection of short animations explaining different maths topics. Many subjects are covered but if you scroll through them you will find those on Mixed and Improper Fractions. The animations are not dynamically generated so you pick a precise question to see answered. Viewing it again will show the exact same numbers rather than picking new ones. This is a bit of a limitation but it still provides children with a useful reference tool that they can make sense of even if their reading comprehension skills are not fully developed.

This paid-for app looks and feels like a game but it teaches the fundamentals of fractions.
