The word 'motion' is in the title of this app because students must tilt the iPad or iPod Touch to move a bouncing star. They try to get the star to land on the correct location on the number line. Points are earned for accuracy.
Students not only identify fractions, but also analyze equivalent fractions and compare them too. Fractions are presented in number form and pictorial representations.
While a little pricy, this app is an excellent way for students to practice working with fractions!
