Free App - Fun way to learn Fractions

Math: Fractions
Grades:5,6, and 7
IOS Ipad and Iphone
Cost: free (As of today)

If you like math and enjoy fractions this is the game for you.

Estimate the decimal equivalent of a given fraction by placing a nest on the numberline. The hens then fire an egg at the correct answer. If your nest is too far off target, the chicken coop gets very messy with splattered eggs! (for iOS/Free)
