App Review: Jungle Fractions, Coins, Time and Geometry

Andrew Short has written a wonderful series of maths apps with a jungle theme featuring fun graphics, animations and sound.  Each app starts at a basic level, but has depth for extending students.

The Fractions app features naming, comparing, converting and adding fractions, while the Coins app lets students identify and compare coins, count value and calculate correct change – with Australian coins.  Time has support for 12 and 24 hour clocks, and students get to tell the time, set the time and compare time.  Geometry looks at shapes, angles, length and more.
