Frax helps all students understand fractions.
ExploreLearning Frax uses the latest research-based instructional methods to create a more effective, more engaging way for students to learn fractions. Fun challenges, personalized instruction, and motivating rewards help all students build mastery—all while exploring the galaxy with fractions!
What's so great about Frax?
Break through the barriers to learning fractions.
The research is clear. Without the ability to understand, represent, and reason about the size of fractions, students cannot make sense of fraction arithmetic and will always struggle to interpret or apply them in the real world. Frax solves this most fundamental problem, unblocking the path to student confidence and success.
Build deep conceptional understanding.
Students work extensively with length models and number lines to interpret, represent, compare, order, and estimate fractions. With this critical grounding, students can move beyond memorized procedures and tricks and come to make sense of fractions and their operations.
Trade struggle for success.
Game-based, story-driven, and standards aligned, the adaptive system meets students where they are and unlocks new games, challenges, and rewards for their efforts. Fun challenges and frequent rewards keep students coming back, while real-time monitoring helps teachers immediately identify students who need help.
Take a journey into fractions with Frax.
Students take on missions throughout the galaxy, exploring new worlds as they hone their fractions knowledge. Each mission (with 3-4 standards-based activities) takes about 30 minutes to complete.
Fun, Challenging Games
Each mission features fun games that challenge students to perform a variety of tasks that build their fractions skills and understanding. Supported by brief, just-in-time instruction, they learn largely by doing.
Rewards for Effort and Progress
As students complete activities and missions, they earn tokens to spend on customizing their ship’s quarters. As they progress, they also unlock trophies that celebrate the completion of a successful mission.
Frax ensures all students succeed. With offline activities, mission reviews, and real-time reporting, educators can quickly discover when students are struggling and how to help. Plus, our support includes trainers and learning communities that foster best teaching practices.
Everybody's Talking About Frax
“I use Frax in my classes. On our mid-year screener, my students outperformed the other 3rd grade classes that don’t use Frax. My two classes’ average point increase was double that of the other five classes.”- Frax Teacher, Liberty Hill Independent School District, TX
“Frax is by far the best program I have seen for fractions. Even the kids who experience math challenges seem to ‘get’ fractions. Now, when any fraction related math comes up in our lessons, they all seem to know the correct answer!”- Frax Teacher, Cloquet Independent School District 94, MN
“My students LOVE Frax. It starts out very basic and walks students through fractions as parts of a whole. One of my students said, ‘I never realized that there are four parts in ¼.’ I love watching the students make these connections and have those light bulb moments.”- Frax Teacher, Archdiocese of Philadelphia, PA
“My students really love the Frax game play and don't even realize that they are doing fractions. They just feel like they are helping solve problems. I also love that I can see what they are doing as they do it and see who is struggling so I can go help them as they work.”- Frax Teacher, Gilbert Unified School District 41, AZ
“I really like how much fraction knowledge my students are retaining with Frax! We recently did an offline debriefing and I was blown away with how many answers my students were getting correct.”- Frax Teacher, Carteret County School District, NC
“Frax has helped students tremendously in their math classes. Those who have completed all the missions are having success easily mastering 4th grade fraction standards which make up 1/2 of our state math assessment test.”- Frax Teacher, Henry County School District, TN
“I love that Frax uses multiple models to help the students conceptually understand fraction magnitude. It gives them a deeper understanding. A student told me ‘I really get fractions now!’ He was so excited because fractions have been a real struggle for him.”- Frax Teacher, Steamboat Springs SD RE-2, CO
