Cookies for Grampy

This interactive Flash game at the Visual Fractions website gives students open-ended practice with combining fractions as parts of a whole. Students are given varying sets of wedges representing a mix of unit fractions. They construct whole circles (cookies) by combining the pieces, or by naming the fractional balance needed to complete each cookie. Instructions (below the applet), feedback, a timer, and a rate of cookies per minute are provided.
