Oh the pains of math! We say to kids, "Want to get good at math? Practice, Practice, Practice!!" But how do we get them to practice when math equals boring + torture? Well, have them spend some time with "Fractions," an app from our acclaimed "Portable Math" series. "Fractions" is the perfect balance between fun and practice. It teaches the basic concepts of fractional arithmetic: addition, subtraction, reduction to lowest terms, and conversion of improper fractions to mixed fractions. "Fractions" uses a teaching method commonly used in Japan and Europe to make math more accessible to students by building a stronger core foundation. The app functions as quiz prep, a question bank, and mental math practice all at the reach of your iPod or iPhone. For those of us who think we’re beyond basic arithmetic, this app might just introduce you to a new dimension of ‘basic math’!
