 lanius Comment: I really like this tool to build equivalance and addition of fractions. OlyKathy Comment: I teach a math intervention class at the middleschool level. This tool will help my students explore fractions in a meaningful and fun way. mgre Comment: Great as far as it goes. Couldn't find info on negative moves and couldn't get them to work. Also don't like that page says grades 3 to 5 when I'd like to use it with grade 9 students who are behind.
