[prMac.com] San Jose, California - The educational independent company, Bel Math Apps today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of Compare All Fractions 1.0, its new iPad application. Compare All Fractions is an important addition to company's popular set of educational iPhone and iPad apps.
Compare All Fractions has 2 goals:
* It serves as a tool for teachers and parents to explore, consolidate and check students' knowledge and understanding of fraction equivalence and ordering
* It is a skill builder of the concept of a quantitative understanding of fractions' order and equivalence for students grades 3 through 6
Both of these goals are important because operating with fractions is extremely difficult for kids unless they can grasp the concept of equivalent fractions and can compare different fractions and determine which is larger, which is smaller, or if they are equal.
The application offers exercises to compare all types of fractions: common fractions, mixed numbers, decimals and percents. It also provides quizzes for practicing conversion between percents, decimals, and common fractions. Compare All Fractions content is aligned with CCSS Mathematics Standards requirements and covers the standards in the following CCSS domains for grades 3 through 6:
* Number & Operations - Fractions
* The Number System
* Number & Operations in Base Ten
* Ratios & Proportional Relationships
Direct connections between Compare All Fractions content and CCSS standards for Mathematical Practice:
* Provides opportunities and tools for teachers and school administrators to effectively implement the Common Core State Standards for Mathematical Practice
* Helps students, parents and teachers to be on the same page
* Helps parents to understand the abilities and skills their kids should develop
* Allow kids to be better prepared for tests/quizzes
Compare All Fractions offers 4 executive pages:
* "Level 1" for comparing 2 common fractions
* "Level 2" for comparing 2 rational numbers
* "Level 3" for converting percents to decimals & fractions
* "Level 4" for arranging in order a mix set of common fractions and decimals
All quizzes are organized in sessions:
* A session consists of 20 quizzes
