This app will transform the way children learn and understand fractions!
"Teaching number sense is really difficult for elementary school students. Teaching fraction number sense can be even harder. My students frequently would "sneak" playing Fractions Boost, and I would pretend not to notice that they were playing extra rounds." - Nick, 4th grade teacher, VT.
"Fractions are often such a difficult concept to teach. I'm so thankful that Teachley has made a game that is equally engaging as it is entertaining!” - Heather Holinger, 4th grade teacher, ME.
Fractions Boost is aligned with all 3rd grade Common Core fractions standards and other state standards, including:
Common Core - 3.NF.A.1, 3.NF.A.2a, 3.NF.A.3b, 3.NF.A.3c, and
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.3.NF.A.2b Represent a fraction a/b on a number line diagram by marking off a lengths 1/b from 0. Recognize that the resulting interval has size a/b and that its endpoint locates the number a/b on the number line.
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.3.NF.A.3d Compare two fractions with the same numerator or the same denominator by reasoning about their size.
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.3.NF.A.3a Understand two fractions as equivalent (equal) if they are the same size, or the same point on a number line.
TEKS - 2.3.A-B, 3.3.A-C, 3.3F-H

Ratings and Reviews
Six-year-old loves this game
My grandson found a great introduction to fractions while playing this game. The graphics appealed to him. He knew 1/2, but after several fifteen-minute sessions he also understood 1/4 and 1/3. 1/5 stumped him. But he's still playing. Currently this is his favorite iPad game.
Please fix the glitch. After few min of play fractions bar stops working
Can’t move the bar to the required fraction after few min of play. Had happened already 10 times. Had to restart the game to fix the problem but it recurs after few exercises again.

Hi LAchik2201, we're sorry to see you were experiencing issues with Fractions Boost. One suggestion is to try restarting your iPad (to refresh the device memory). If that doesn't work, delete and re-install the game. If you need more support, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We'd love to help you get playing again!
