The research is clear that students are failing at fractions, with 60% unable to demonstrate proficiency. Fractions are a "critical foundation" of algebra, so while students attempt to learn fractions in elementary school, the consequences of this "pervasive" failure aren't going to hit hard until the end of Middle School.
THAT is why we have pioneered such a uniquely powerful tool JUST for fractions.
See for yourself. Run your students through our demo. You'll quickly see exactly how they're doing with each standard as well as how quickly we teach them.
"27% of eighth-graders could not correctly shade 1/3 of a rectangle."

Any program can keep a student amused and occupied. That's not good enough. Our high-end gameplay provides an extra level of engagement that enables them to work quickly through our rigorous, powerful curriculum.
But you'll have to see it for yourself to believe it. So grab a student and watch how effectively they learn in our awesome program.
"Now I don't have to spend my whole year re-teaching prerequisite skills."

Fractions generally comprise about 1/6 of an elementary student's End of Grade Test. That's significant, but the real impact likely won't be felt until they hit Algebra the end of Middle School. That's why "a major goal for K-8 mathematics education should be proficiency with fractions."
In our first randomized study with a control group, students who played our Fractions game for just 2wo hours improved 9% more than the control group on an external assessment. 16% if you remove outliers and students already scoring above 90%.
Run a pilot with your own class so you can make a data-driven decision based on your own student results.
"It's so fun to teach a class that's all caught up in fractions."
