Quick Fractions

Age Level: Ages 8-12
By Developer: Shiny Things


Quick Fractions is just another great app by Shiny Things. It's interface is very simple, with a clean look. But, the proof is in the pudding.

There are 4 levels of play as follows: equivalence, comparison, addition & subtraction, multiplication and division. Once a category is chosen, the user picks from four levels of difficulty; beginner, intermediate, advanced and extreme. On this page you can do some brush up by going into “Fraction Tips”. These tips give the basic step-by-step rules on how to do whatever kind of fraction problems that you have chosen to work with. These tips can also be pulled up while in “game mode”, should one need a little help.

I love the fact that the app only progresses in difficulty for each level of difficulty being worked on. This keeps one from getting overwhelmed while moving on the correct learning curve. It is designed for grades 4 and up (ages 9-11) and perfect for honing in on pre-algebra basics.

The app allows a parent or teacher to view each players statistics, showing their level(s) of difficulty and their progress over time.

Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
