With school fully under way, and the first quarter almost complete, kids are finding their math classes are becoming more complex. Those children in 3rd to 8th grade are working with fractions which can be difficult, but with the right encouragement can be easily mastered. Fraction Math deals with positive and negative fractions, improper fractions, whole numbers and mixed numbers. The user can also reduce the resulting fractions. This app is loaded with helpful math information and you will find below many of the ways in which kids can simplify learning and preparing math assignments:

- A third-grade student can use the app to add and subtract fractions with equal denominators.

- A fourth-grade student can use the app to add or subtract fractions and mixed numbers with different denominators and also to reduce the resulting fractions.

- A fifth-grade student can multiply fractions by whole numbers and other fractions. She can also divide fractions and mixed numbers.

- A sixth or higher-grade student can use negative fractions, whole numbers and mixed numbers, as well as larger numbers in the problems.

- The user can also see the problem and the answer in decimal notation, if preferred.

- Intelligent help system - This app has a help system that provides over 60 context sensitive tips based on the state of the app. For example, when searching for a lowest common denominator, the help system will first tell how to search for the answer. If, after trying the user cannot find the answer, the help system will note what is the lowest common denominator.

- Smart keyboard - When the user has to enter numbers, the Fraction Math app uses the same intuitive smart rolling keyboard as other apps by the developer.

Every step is animated - In dividing two fractions the second fraction is first inverted by turning it upside down. The inverting is animated.

Fun illustrations - The 60 different tips have a lot of information about fractions, mixed numbers, improper fractions and reduction of fractions. The tips have over 50 illustrations.

Three different themes - The app has three different themes. The Happy theme has illustrations. If the older student prefers a theme without illustrations, there is also a black and a white theme.

- Difficulty can be changed with Settings
