Fraction Strips

Use these colorful fraction strips to model fraction relationships and solve mixed fraction problems.  Students often struggle to visualize and understand the concept of fractions, but not anymore with this helpful virtual manipulative. By moving the fraction bars onto the canvas, students can see the differences between various denominators and integrate the concept of equivalent fractions. Help students see 1.5 as a fraction as the frame is wide enough for the fractions to sum to 2.  Clear tiles by moving them off the screen or clear the whole screen with the trashcan button. Draw on the white space with the pencil button and clear the writing with the eraser button. These fraction strips are sure to be helpful in the elementary school classroom.
