Refraction

This game requires students to divide the unit into fractions in order to distribute the proper laser power to the space creatures. Each level begins with a laser with a value of 1 that must be divided into several parts (from 1/2 to 11/24). The first few levels simply show how to redirect the laser, and then each level builds to more complicated fractions. The user may play the game straight through or choose a level of difficulty.
