Hi! It’s Monday, June 24, 2013 and time for Math at ClickSchooling!
Age Range: 9-14 (approximately, with parental supervision)
This website offers a free tutorial for learning about fractions. Through the use of interactive exercises and visual aids (like number lines and circle graphs), students can learn how to:
- Identify fractions
- Rename fractions
- Compare fractions
- Add, subtract, multiply and divide fractions
The concepts are demonstrated through the visual images and explained in text format. Then, the student can practice their understanding with an interactive drill session. There are even free, printable worksheets to practice fractions offline.
The creators suggest that the student answer 10 in-a-row correctly before moving on to the next concept. They also suggest that the best way to use the site is to progress in the order displayed – as mastery of one concept leads to understanding the next.
This site presents a good mix of lessons with visual demonstrations, animated manipulatives for building and understanding concepts, interactive drills to do online, and follow-up worksheets for offline reinforcement.
