The first two programs on this tape are leaching programs, and the last tests the player's knowledge.

Are They The Same? shows that when the numerator and denominator are equal the fraction must equal one, and that fractions such as 2/4.3/6 and 4/8 are equal.

Work Them Out extends this to the numerical concept of equivalent fractions. And Match Them sets some fraction problems. Overall, Fractions 2 is an excellent package, and the teaching sequences make very good use of graphics

Keyboard play: good
Graphics: extremely good visual representations and clear colours


General Rating: A very effective and attractive method of teaching fractions; it'll give the teacher/parent good information on the child's grasp of the concepts, too.
