Thinking Blocks Fractions

This iOS app gives students an opportunity to visually model and calculate six different types of fraction applications, all in the context of solving word problems. Types of problems include finding a fraction of a number, using a known part to find the whole or another part, and problems using the four operations. Teachers can track a student's progress throughout the problem sets. An online version of this application is cataloged separately as a related resource.
