App of the week: Ordered Fractions
What is it? Ordered Fractions provides a tool that offers an innovative method of learning about comparing and ordering fractions. The game begins by rolling the dice, and students then insert these numbers into the boxes on the board, which creates the fractions. Students then position the fractions in ascending (or descending) order by comparing fractions. Students also have the option of exchanging the current set of numbers and re-rolling the dice. Along the way, the game offers helps and tips that enhance learning and make concepts easier to comprehend.
