Fraction Track

This interactive applet provides a visual model to help students compare fractions and understand equivalent fractions. The applet displays eight fraction tracks (unit number lines) divided into fractional increments from halves to twelfths. The user turns over cards displaying fractions and moves sliders on the tracks a distance equal to or less than the target fractions. The goal is to move all the sliders to the end of each fraction track in the least number of moves.
