Visual Fractions Decimals and Percentages is a handy, no-frills tool for creating models. With many options for dividing whole units, as well as options for modeling mixed numbers, kids with varying abilities can use it. They won't get any instruction, so the app is best used to support learning. Fortunately, as a help menu is not provided, using the features is mostly intuitive. Activity suggestions could extend the overall learning value, but it's still an extremely useful tool for supporting important math concepts with visual representations.

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.
