Frax Tour 1
Engaging fractions instruction
Students join the crew aboard the F.F.S. Sable as they travel through space on engaging Frax missions. In Sector 1, students develop a foundational understanding that fractions are numbers that can be compared and represented on a number line. In Sector 2, students expand on their conceptual knowledge to work with fractions in various contexts, including decomposing fractions, generating equivalent fractions, comparing fractions with unlike denominators, and adding fractions in tenths and hundredths.

Everybody's Talking About Frax
“Frax is by far the best program I have seen for fractions. Even the kids who experience math challenges seem to ‘get’ fractions. Now, when any fraction related math comes up in our lessons, they all seem to know the correct answer!”- Frax Teacher, Cloquet Independent School District 94, MN
"I use Frax in my classes. On our mid-year screener, my students outperformed the other 3rd grade classes that don’t use Frax. My two classes’ average point increase was double that of the other five classes."- Frax Teacher, Liberty Hill Independent School District, TX
"My kids absolutely love Frax! Their abilities vary, but ALL my students feel success with Frax. They have a much better grasp on fractions overall and it has really made a difference in what we are able to do in class."- Frax Teacher, Redwood Preparatory Charter School, CA
"My students are super sad that there are only 27 Frax missions. They are literally begging to do more fraction work! One student who usually struggles with math concepts completed all of the missions and is now getting A’s in math instead of C’s."- Frax Teacher, Greenville Co School District, SC
"My students LOVE Frax! They now regularly say things like ‘Well I know that 1/4 + 1/4 = 1/2...’ or ‘I know that 3/6 = 1/2...’, which were not things they were saying before working on Frax. The improvement in their fraction fluency has been noticeable."- Frax Teacher, Governor Wentworth Regional School District, NH
