Tool: MathTappers: Fraction Estimation
Tool Thumbnail

Go to: (opens a new window)
Description: Fraction Estimation is designed to help learners to build their intuitive understanding of fractions by helping them to relate fractions (both symbols and pictures) to the nearest half (e.g., 0, 1, 1, 2, etc.) and then to extend their understanding by challenging them to use fraction estimates in addition and subtraction problems. Learners should be able to master the challenges in this app before moving on to formal operations with fractions.

This app does not replace instruction or tutoring but rather it supports such. We recommend that this app be used in conjunction with classroom or tutoring activities to support consolidation, mastery and fluency through a series of manageable challenges. Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 3.1.3 or later.
