Fraction as Slope
Fraction as Slope

by iDevBooks

The Fraction as Slope app provides algebra students a new visual way to think about slope and fractions by showing how fractions are slopes. This provides an opportunity to increase conceptual understanding of both fractions and slopes. Students can explore, compare, add, subtract, reduce, and expand positive and negative fractions just by drawing and moving graphs of lines. This version adds different color themes.
