# Description

Create equivalent fractions by dividing and shading squares or circles, and match each fraction to its location on the number line. Check your work, and use the table feature to capture results and look for patterns. Got a particular value for which you’d like to make equivalent fractions? Use “Build Your Own” mode.

## Fractions

Fractions is an original game of reflexion combining mental calculation and speed.

At start, a grid is generated randomly and has squares with each 4 values under differents forms (fractions, percentage, integer, decimal, subtraction, addition).

For exemple, value 0.6 can be represented like that in Fractions :

- 3/5

- 6/10

- 12/20

- 9-8.4

- 7-6.4

- 60%

- …

All of theses forms are an equality in Fractions.

Thus, solve a Fractions grid consists to find all equalities between squares’ values in contact on the grid.

To do that, you should make roll values of squares clockwise by clicking on it.

For players that want more complexity in game, levels 4, 5 and 6 will be a perfect challenge since grid’s squares are shuffled at game start. So, to solve grid you should also make drag and drop with squares !

To solve grid as fast as possible with least possible actions will let you to realize high score between Fractions players around the world.

Fractions has also the following functionalities :

* Share high scores throungh the world

* Configure your player name thanks to Preferences menu available on Fractions home screen

* Consult Fractions high scores around the world with your personal ranking displayed

* Consult stats during grid resolution

* Help for levels 4, 5 and 6 to mark squares well placed by a little orange square and squares well placed with values in good order thanks to little green square at left top of squares.

* An elegant help menu lets you to see how to play to Fractions. Changes between screens are realized thanks to edges that are in bottom of the screen or by flip on screen right to left or left to right respectively to go to previous screen or next screen.

## Fraction Voyager

This puzzle based game is designed to introduce youngsters to fractions, decimals and percentages in an intuitive way. Designed, produced and tested by kids, it provides an easy introduction to what is sometimes a tricky area of mathematics. Fraction Voyager has six unique chapters, before letting the user loose to explore an infinite number of randomly generated levels.

## AP Trig Functions Game

This is a simple game which makes memorising exact values of trigonometric functions fun and easier.

This game helps you learn or revise the exact value of some trigonometric functions. Currently the game uses the fraction results as the answer keys. Game covers Sine, Cosine and Tangent and Angles of 30°, 45° and 60°.

## Denominator

A math puzzle.

The objective is to find integer dividers for a given number.

The objective is to find integer dividers for a given number.

For example: 8 / 4 = 2

You will have 10 seconds for each number.

You will have 3 lives and lose one if the selected divider is incorrect or if you have not selected a divider within 10 seconds.

The points that you will get will be equal to the sum of the selected dividers and you will gain a life for every 1000 points you collect.

## Right Brain × Left Brain

"Let's promote collaboration between your right brain and left brain!"

What is the secret of cleverness?

Is it that the right brain which manages intuition is developed?

Or is it that the left brain which manages logic is developed?

In fact, the secret of cleverness is not that one brain is developed, but that both brains can cooperate smoothly.

It is said that that Dr. Einstein had the remarkable cooperation between the right brain and left brain.

"Right Brain x Left Brain" is a game which enhances cooperation between your right brain and left brain.

【Game Introduction】

(1)Color × Character

This is a game which enhances cooperation between the "color cognition" which is a domain of the right brain and the "character cognition" which is the domains of the left brain.

Can you choose correctly, without mixing up the contents and the color of a character?

(2)Figure × Calculation

This is a game which enhances cooperation between the "pattern cognition" which is a domain of the right brain and the "calculating ability" which is the domains of the left brain.

Unlike the usual numerical calculation, the number is replaced with the figure.

If it is a number, you are an easy numerical calculation, but can you solve?

(3)Number × Numeral

This is a game which enhances cooperation between the "number cognition" which is a domain of the right brain and the "numeral cognition" which is the domains of the left brain.

Can you recognize the number of a numeral and numeral quickly, and touch it?
