This interactive Java applet helps users explore equivalent fractions through partitioning circles and squares. The applet provides a random fraction and the user creates one or two equivalent representations of that fraction by partitioning and coloring a square (or circle). The applet also plots the fraction on a number line and points from the shape to the number line displaying its equivalent value while the fraction is being built. Options include choice of circles or squares, one or two equivalent fractions, and a scoring feature allows users to keep track of the number correct.
