Slice Fractions

Price: - Free

Overview

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.
