Perfect for 7 to 11 year olds, the Squeebles are here to help your children practise their fractions in a fun, colourful way, with cakes!!! - The Squeebles games have been featured on BBC Radio, as well as in The Daily Telegraph, The Observer, The Guardian and more. Featuring 4 mini games, a great reward scheme involving cakes (and we all love cakes), several difficulty levels and unlimited players this Squeebles game will make the task of learning fractions a LOT more fun. The game is aimed at 7-11 year olds but can be used by anyone who wants to brush up on their fractions in a fun
Squeebles Fractions is a free educational mobile app By Ian Knapp.It helps students in grades 3,4,5 practice the following standards 3.NF.3,5.NF.B.3,4.NF.C.5.
1. 3.NF.3 : Explain equivalence of fractions in special cases, and compare fractions by reasoning about their size. (Grade 3 expectations in this domain are limited to fractions with denominators 2, 3, 4, 6, and 8.).
2. 5.NF.B.3 : Interpret a fraction as division of the numerator by the denominator (a/b = a ÷ b). Solve word problems involving division of whole numbers leading to answers in the form of fractions or mixed numbers, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem. For example, interpret 3/4 as the result of dividing 3 by 4, noting that 3/4 multiplied by 4 equals 3 and that when 3 wholes are shared equally among 4 people each person has a share of size 3/4. If 9 people want to share a 50-pound sack of rice equally by weight, how many pounds of rice should each person get? Between what two whole numbers does your answer lie?.
3. 4.NF.C.5 : Express a fraction with denominator 10 as an equivalent fraction with denominator 100, and use this technique to add two fractions with respective denominators 10 and 100. For example, express 3/10 as 30/100 and add 3/10 + 4/100 = 34/100. (Students who can generate equivalent fractions can develop strategies for adding fractions with unlike denominators in general. But addition and subtraction with unlike denominators in general is not a requirement at this grade.) (Grade 4 expectations in this domain are limited to fractions with denominators 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, and 100.).
