Equivalent Fractions

In this NCTM Android app a user identifies equivalent fractions for a given random fraction or one of the player's own. The user creates their representations by dividing and shading either a square or circular region. The fractions are shown as locations on the number line and their equivalency is demonstrated when they are at the same point. The user has the ability to construct a table of equivalent fractions. This app is related to an Illuminations activity and an iOS app that are cataloged separately.
