Common Sense Media Reviewers
Learn math concepts with playful puzzles, problem-solving.
A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Part-whole partitioning, numerator/denominator notation, equivalent fractions, fraction multiplication, finding the common denominator, and fractions larger than one.
Ease of Play
Tap and swipe to move the game forward. A hand icon shows kids what to do in the tutorial, or if they're stuck they can tap the rewind icon to reset the level. Since there are no words and some of the levels require some rather abstract thinking, many levels on this app could be quite frustrating to some kids in the age range the app is created for (6 to 8).

What’s It About?
To play SLICE FRACTIONS 2, tap Play and tap the first mammoth icon to learn the rules of the game through a tutorial. Strategically tap snails to set off chain reactions, remove obstacles, drop blocks, build a snail bridge, and move the mammoth forward. Swipe red lines on blocks to slice them into fractions. If a player selects the wrong order of tapping and swiping to move the mammoth forward, tap the rewind icon in the upper-right corner to try the level again. Return to the levels to view progress and read what skills you're learning.
Is It Any Good?
The cute mammoth, stretchy snails, and other adorable creatures bring an unusually fun playfulness to learning fractions. Slice Fractions 2 helps kids build visual understanding for concepts such as fractions multiplication, manipulating big fractions, and more. On the downside, since there are no words and some of the levels require some rather abstract thinking, younger users and auditory learners may find more frustration than learning. For kids who gravitate toward visual learning, however, Slice Fractions 2 is a fun way for them to gain conceptual knowledge through play that may serve them very well when it's time to express those concepts in concrete ways in the classroom.
Talk to Your Kids About ...
Families can talk about why Slice Fractions 2 doesn't use words and even omits numbers (or leaves them to a bare minimum on many levels) but can still help kids learn fractions concepts. What are some other real-life examples of use of fractions where words and numbers aren't seen? Slicing a pizza? Splitting a cookie evenly? Estimating how long it will take to complete cleaning half of your room?
Talk about your child's learning style. Does your kid like learning with verbal instructions or visual cues? Abstract or concrete concepts?
Discuss perseverance. Slice Fractions 2 has many, many levels, and it may take numerous play sessions for many kids to complete this app.

Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
