My wife, Joann, is a certified elementary and middle school teacher with a background in mathematics. I've been programming as a hobby off and on for 35 years. Together, we've created a series of educational iOS applications for young students.
Each of our apps focus on practice of a single, newly learned concept in an engaging, game-like environment. Designed for short, pick up and play, sessions, they are ideal for both home and classroom use.
Application is very easy to learn
Provides great introduction to fractions that is fun and easy
Great visualizing the concept
No other shapes or food types
Would be more engaging if there was more animation to the game
More interactive sound effects
No directions or narration for beginners
Would be more kid friendly with rewards for right answers
DOK Levels and Classroom Usage
DOK level 1 for those that have had fractions
This would be a engaging way to introduce fractions to a class. Teachers can explain the game to the students by doing a few of the problems. Then let them figure out the problems for a little bit. This would make a fun pretest that students could do individually. The higher level pizza fractions games could be introduced once students have the fundamentals of the easier game.
