Best Fraction Apps for Kids
Squeebles Fractions $1.99
Practice your fraction knowledge with cakes! Players must recognize fractions, match equivalent fractions, add fractions, and more in fun games with fractions from halves to twelfths. Love the Squeebles apps!
Slice Fractions $2.99
This fun fraction app takes you to the ice age. You’re a cute baby mammoth trying to get pasted blocks of ice, volcanoes, and road problems. To move forward, you’re required to slice the fire or ice blocks into fractional parts – halves, thirds, fourths. The app has great functionality, learning through play, and illustrations.
Fruity Fractions $2.99
This excellent fruity fraction app teaches how to fractions using fruit. Each game includes a teaching point with practice play. The graphics are incredible and I really like how the learning and practice scaffold from easy to more difficult in 50 levels of developmentally appropriate lessons. Kids start by learning how equal slices of fruit are equal fractions and continue to learn more about fractions such as numerator and denominator. Excellent.

From simple fractions to equivalent, addition, and comparing with three levels of difficulty, this is a fun fractions app with games a plenty. (The music gets a bit annoying but that’s easily turned off.) Great app!
Fraction Monkey $1.99
In Angry Birds style, players launch cupcakes (!!) at the correct answers in 40 levels of adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing fractions.
Pearl Diver $.99
This app focuses on whole numbers and fractions on the number line, decimals as fractions, and comparing and ordering decimals and fractions. I like the visual of having a number line but cutting up an electric eel is a bit morbid.
