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
“The sequence of instruction in Frax has really laid a solid foundation for my students' understanding of fractions. Before introducing fractions, the fraction questions on iStation were really challenging to students but after having just a week of Frax before having to take it again, that percentage of questions correct drastically improved for some students!! I can't wait to see how they do after a month!”- Frax Teacher, Russellville School District, AR
“My students love playing Frax! Teaching them fractions have never been easier. I feel like so many of the common misconceptions are corrected, and we have barely started whole group fraction instruction.”- Frax Teacher, Gilmer County School District, GA
“The kids are loving Frax. They are excited to use it and I can see a huge difference in their ability to understand, visualize and model fractions in their math activities. I love when I am teaching a fraction lesson and the students say, ‘I saw this in Frax’ or ‘I know this because of Frax.’”- Frax Teacher, Hartland Consolidated School District, MI
“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
“No other program scaffolds and builds understanding like Frax does. I have never seen students understand fractions and feel comfortable answering questions about them so quickly and easily when I start our instruction.”- Frax Teacher, Hillsborough County School District, FL
“My students LOVE Frax! They now regularly say things like ‘Well I know that 1/4 + 1/4 = 1/2...’ or ‘I know that 3/6 = 1/2...’, which were not things they were saying before working on Frax. The improvement in their fraction fluency has been noticeable.”- Frax Teacher, Governor Wentworth Regional School District, NH
“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
