The Fraction Math app can be used to teach and study fractions by solving addition, subtraction, division and multiplication problems with fractions step by step

Fraction Math is exactly what the title says. It's an app about fractions. The lessons are detailed and it is full of content, but the UI is very similar to a standardized test, which keeps it from being an essential app. Because of its resemblance to a test, it may not be the best app to engage your young mathematician.

by Brad Spirrison, managing editor of appoLearning and Appolicious Inc.


Experience Math is a serious, yet engaging way to ensure that all students understand the meaning behind the numbers. Experience Math is designed for:

1) Struggling students who are overwhelmed by traditional math instruction
2) Average students who need a firmer grasp on math
3) Strong math students who are not challenged by classroom instruction.

Experience Math does more than teach kids how to calculate. We build the deeper levels of meaning that most math programs neglect. Our 7 Math Senses develop the patterns and sequences, the sense of quantity and number relationships that give math meaning. When your student understands the meaning behind the numbers then calculations and problem solving are effortless.

The 7 Senses may look simple but they are exactly what is holding them back— and preventing them from loving math. We promise that learning math has never been easier or enjoyable.

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.
