About Teachley: Fractions Boost

Teachley: Fractions Boost is an exciting 3D racing game that helps children in 3rd-5th grades gain conceptual understanding of fractions while learning how to represent them on a number line. Children race through a futuristic world, driving through number line checkpoints and fraction tunnels. 

This engaging game, designed by teachers, features built-in lessons and powerful scaffolds to deepen children’s knowledge of fractions. Teachley: Fractions Boost covers all of 3rd grade fractions standards, including comparison and equivalence of fractions.

This app will transform the way children learn and understand fractions! 

“Teaching number sense is really difficult for elementary school students. Teaching fraction number sense can be even harder. My students frequently would “sneak” playing Fractions Boost, and I would pretend not to notice that they were playing extra rounds.” – Nick, 4th grade teacher, VT.

“Fractions are often such a difficult concept to teach. I’m so thankful that Teachley has made a game that is equally engaging as it is entertaining!” – Heather Holinger, 4th grade teacher, ME. 

Fractions Boost is aligned with all 3rd grade Common Core fractions standards and other state standards, including: 

Common Core – 3.NF.A.1, 3.NF.A.2a, 3.NF.A.3b, 3.NF.A.3c, and

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.3.NF.A.2b Represent a fraction a/b on a number line diagram by marking off a lengths 1/b from 0. Recognize that the resulting interval has size a/b and that its endpoint locates the number a/b on the number line.

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.3.NF.A.3d Compare two fractions with the same numerator or the same denominator by reasoning about their size.

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.3.NF.A.3a Understand two fractions as equivalent (equal) if they are the same size, or the same point on a number line.

TEKS – 2.3.A-B, 3.3.A-C, 3.3F-H

About Teachley: Mt. Multiplis

About the game:

Linka gets caught in a terrible storm while flying home after a successful treasure hunt. She escapes but her plane isn’t as lucky. Help Linka make her way through Mt. Multiplis by building bridges, unlocking treasure, and earning gems. Rebuild Linka’s plane by collecting the pieces from the greedy Crags who live on the island. 

Developed by teachers and experts in children’s cognition and learning, Mt. Multiplis is an engaging game that teaches multiplication through the commutative and distributive properties. While most multiplication apps focus on drill with digital worksheets and flashcards, Mt. Multiplis scaffolds learning to promote conceptual understanding, efficiency with multiplication strategies, and fact fluency. 

The Common Core State Standards expect third graders to use the distributive property when multiplying (CCSM.3.OA.B.5): “Knowing that 8 × 5 = 40 and 8 × 2 = 16, one can find 8 × 7 as 8 × (5 + 2) = (8 × 5) + (8 × 2) = 40 + 16 = 56.” Mt. Multiplis is designed to make this complex content more approachable and fun for kids. Students can think strategically, seeing how 7 x 8 is the same as 5 groups of 8 plus 2 more groups of 8.

Supports Response to Intervention programs:

Mt. Multiplis is a great tool for classroom teachers looking to differentiate instruction for students. The app is also great for parents who want to support their children’s learning. 

Recommended Grades: 3rd-5th (6th-8th intervention)

Meets Common Core Math Standards: 

-3.OA.A.1 -3.OA.A.3 -3.OA.A.7 -3.OA.B.5
