Bridge Builders

In this interactive game, students build bridges using fractional lengths in the form of fraction bars. Gap length may be known or unknown, entirely empty or partially filled. Fractions to fill the gap must be constructed in specific ways, using the four basic operations. After five tries at one level, the game resets. Note that the game sometimes expects particular answers: students may need to multiply 2/5 by 3 rather than multiplying 3/5 by 2, for example, even though both computations would produce the same result.
