Visual Fractions is a tutorial that offers instruction and practice in identifying, renaming, and operating on fractions and was created by Richard E. Rand. The website reviews examples of fractions, which are modeled with number lines or circles. Throughout the website are instructions to follow, encouraging students to try a few activities on their own. For a more light-hearted approach, Rand has a game that involves using fractions to help Grammy find Grampy and to make treats for Grampy. The software programs used to create the line and circle fractions, Fraction Modeler and Fraction Maker, are available for purchase and described on this website.
