Fractions Understanding Nexus (FUN)

Fractions Understanding Nexus (FUN)
Mobile App Design & Development
FUN is a GSP-like fraction software tool/app (FUN) that helps students understand fraction operations in a meaningful way. Although the tool could be used as a “fraction calculator,” its main strength would be that it makes each fraction operation concrete, and therefore, more meaningful to students. Students would be able to explore the meaning of fractions on their own or with teachers and parents. FUN would also be ideal for math teachers and parents to use to teach fraction concepts and operations to students, especially in classroom settings. (GSP is Geometer’s Sketchpad, a software program whose menus, tools, and functionalities are the inspiration for FUN’s design.)
