The following are apps students will need to download on their iPads to use in Fractions and Decimals class. Please download these apps from the app store by Tuesday, September 6.
I have provided a virtual set of fraction bars on www.abcya.com for several years. Many teachers have contacted me about creating a similar application for the iPad. Here it is! I offer this app for free because virtual manipulatives alone do not provide meaning for learners; they require a teacher to guide meaning and connections.
"The most comprehensive fractions app I've seen. This app should be in every classroom!" -- BestAppsForKids.org
"If you have a student or child that has difficulty with fractions then this is the app for you." -- SmartAppsForKids.com
Everything you need for teaching and learning: (1) Narrated lesson (2) Practice questions (3) Virtual manipulative (4) Challenging game
This free video app teaches you the core concepts of fractions in 12 computer-animated, visually interactive videos. Fraction Basics is designed to help you easily navigate the videos to access just the lesson you need to tackle, and you can easily skip to your problem areas or targeted sections. Our video app is divided into the following parts listed below to help you build a strong foundation in fractions:
