Free iPad app: Zap Zap Fractions

Zap Zap Fractions
by Wei Chong
2014 (Visual Math Studio)
iPad app
Price: FREE!!!!!

If you know a child that is just beginning to learn about fractions, you will want to check out Zap Zap Fractions. First of all, it's free. No harm to downloading it and giving it a try. You will want to go through the tutorial first. Important topics like numerators and denominators will be explained. One aspect of Zap Zap that I really appreciate is the use of number lines. They abound in this app. It's important that students are able to work with a number line. Once you finish with the tutorial, it's time to play the game. You are an alien in a spaceship that is facing oncoming asteroids. In order to shoot the asteroids, you have to answer questions about fractions correctly. You have to survive one minute of answering questions. Miss a question and you will need to start over again. It's fun to play and a little addictive. Try it out!
