Essence Computing

Do you need to convert fractions into decimals or decimals into fractions? Can't quite remember how to do it? Well this App is for you. Not only does it do the calculations for you but it also provides comprehensive explanations as to how it was done so that you can not only know the answer but understand how it was arrived at. While some calculations are easy enough converting a recurring decimal into a fraction is not. You need to know how it is done and this App explains how step by step.

The App can take a fraction and convert it into its decimal equivalent and also provide a page that explains how the answer was arrived at. You can even see whether the decimal is recurring or not. Just type in the fraction in the three boxes provided and the decimal equivalent will be shown. If the answer ends in three '...' then the number is recurring.

The App can also take a decimal and convert it into its equivalent fraction providing a page that explains how the answer was arrived at. The decimal number can either be specified as recurring or not and if it is how many digits are recurring.

Some examples,

0.3 not recurring is 3/10

0.3 with one digit recurring is 1/3 (specify recurring Yes and recurring digits 1)

0.311 not recurring is 311/1000

0.301 with one digit recurring is 271/900 (specify recurring Yes and recurring digits 1)

0.301 with two digits recurring is 149/495 (specify recurring Yes and recurring digits 2)

0.142857142857 with six digits recurring is 1/7 (specify recurring Yes and recurring digits 6)

In the final example the 6 recurring digits are specified twice but this does not matter to the App. The excess digits are carefully removed and the calculation done with 0.142857

New Version: To those of you who have purchased the Fractions Calculator functionality. You can now have negative fractions. Either specify the whole number as negative or if zero just put a minus sign.

Math Galaxy Fractions Fun

Math Galaxy Fractions Fun

Math Galaxy

Math Galaxy Fractions Fun is a comprehensive fractions tutorial with explanations, practice, and games that cover all fraction operations and concepts, including equivalent fractions, comparing fractions, reducing fractions, improper fractions, prime factors, greatest common factor, least common multiple, adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing, word problems, plus geometry, English and metric measurement, graphs and probability.

By solving problems students earn robots to use in a maze game called the Labyrinth.
Other number games include Bridge the Swamp and The Money Trail.


Math Galaxy's approach to learning math is based on the philosophy that:

(1) New ideas must be connected to a child's current network of knowledge and experience.

(2) Skills develop along a concrete-to-abstract continuum, with advanced skills developed by generalizing from more concrete experiences.

(3) A child must see a wide range of instances of a concept in order to separate out extraneous material from what is essential.

(4) A child needs to be actively engaged with new ideas and not passively entertained.

(5) Ultimately, students will be using calculators, so the goal of elementary math should not be to add or multiply long columns of numbers but to understand the basic concepts behind the operations.

Unlike most math textbooks, which throw a mass of material at the student, Math Galaxy focuses student attention on concepts sequentially and interactively, based upon the ideas behind math manipulatives (such as counting blocks) and connecting new concepts to familiar experiences. Unlike most math software, it goes beyond simple games, low-level operations or rule memorization to link familiar and concrete experiences to higher-level processes. It goes beyond physical math manipulatives by linking each physical operation to its mathematical counterpart at each step, and by allowing manipulations that are difficult to do with physical manipulatives. It stresses concepts that run throughout all of basic math to provide basic understanding rather than memorized rules.

Our goal is to provide students a foundation for analytical thinking in the modern world and for higher-level math and science.

The key to learning math is consistency. It is best taken in small doses but done consistently. Even ten minutes or ten problems a day will improve your child's understanding of math if done consistently.

"As I explored each area of the program, I became more and more impressed with the mathematical challenges it presented."

"Each of the various areas that your child can can work in has several nice functions."
"I do highly recommend Math Galaxy Fractions Fun for those who would like additional resources to supplement their math curriculum, as a tool to present a difficult curriculum in a different way, and as drill practice."
