In this app, a division problem (for instance, 18 ÷ 2 = ) is illustrated by sharing a certain number of apples (18) between a certain number of girls (2). When the student clicks on the first number (18) that many apples (18) appear on the screen. When the student clicks on the second number (2) that many girls (2) with baskets appear. The student then clicks on each apple, which then moves into a girl’s basket. Each apple gets a number when it gets into a basket. The student will be told to click on the last apple in the last basket, which will be blinking (that apple’s number is the answer). That number (9) will rise into the number statement.
If this is selected, then any and all of the numbers in this box will be used. To deselect this choice, click it again and selection will be ended.
Select Random Numbers
If this is selected, then the program will choose the numbers to be used in the division problems.
This box is checked by default. When this is checked, clicking the correct number invites a congratulatory animation. This animation runs for ten seconds. Click anywhere on the screen or press the space bar to stop the congratulatory animation.
