Fractions lets students use a bar or circle to represent, compare, and perform operations with fractions with denominators from 1 to 100. Choose the fraction model and number of equal parts. Use a color to select specific parts to show a fraction of the whole. Reveal or hide numeric labels as needed. Superimpose fractions upon each other to compare fractions or see equal parts.


• Use a bar or circle as the whole.

• Divide each whole into anywhere from 1 to 100 equal parts.

• Compare fractions and represent equivalent fractions.

• Add, subtract, multiply, and divide with fractions.

• Explore the relationship between fractions, percents, and decimals.

• Select the size of the whole and the number of equal parts.

• Hide and reveal fraction labels.

• Hide and reveal work with resizable covers to create your own problems and model strategies.

• Use the drawing tools to annotate work and show understanding.

• Add equations, expressions, and descriptions with the math text and writing tools.

• Share your work by saving an image or providing a share code to others.

School versus fractions

I like fractions because it is a great way to learn fractions in a friendly way / compare fractions. In fractions there are two different ways of putting in fractions and you can do any fraction you want!

Very versatile

Thank you for this easy to use app! It's free and has no ads! I use it with my homeschooled children who love to do anything on the iPad. I love that it can be used with any math curriculum, for any grade that studies fractions. Just a note, this is a tool, not a game, it is not meant to teach fractions without guidance from a teacher.

Great app

I'm so glad someone has come up with a simple way to represent fractions! This will be so useful with my elementary math intervention students.
