Frax helps all students understand fractions.
ExploreLearning Frax uses the latest research-based instructional methods to create a more effective, more engaging way for students to learn fractions. Fun challenges, personalized instruction, and motivating rewards help all students build mastery—all while exploring the galaxy with fractions!
What's so great about Frax?
Break through the barriers to learning fractions.
The research is clear. Without the ability to understand, represent, and reason about the size of fractions, students cannot make sense of fraction arithmetic and will always struggle to interpret or apply them in the real world. Frax solves this most fundamental problem, unblocking the path to student confidence and success.
Build deep conceptional understanding.
Students work extensively with length models and number lines to interpret, represent, compare, order, and estimate fractions. With this critical grounding, students can move beyond memorized procedures and tricks and come to make sense of fractions and their operations.
Trade struggle for success.
Game-based, story-driven, and standards aligned, the adaptive system meets students where they are and unlocks new games, challenges, and rewards for their efforts. Fun challenges and frequent rewards keep students coming back, while real-time monitoring helps teachers immediately identify students who need help.
Take a journey into fractions with Frax.
Students take on missions throughout the galaxy, exploring new worlds as they hone their fractions knowledge. Each mission (with 3-4 standards-based activities) takes about 30 minutes to complete.
Fun, Challenging Games
Each mission features fun games that challenge students to perform a variety of tasks that build their fractions skills and understanding. Supported by brief, just-in-time instruction, they learn largely by doing.
Rewards for Effort and Progress
As students complete activities and missions, they earn tokens to spend on customizing their ship’s quarters. As they progress, they also unlock trophies that celebrate the completion of a successful mission.
Frax ensures all students succeed. With offline activities, mission reviews, and real-time reporting, educators can quickly discover when students are struggling and how to help. Plus, our support includes trainers and learning communities that foster best teaching practices.
Everybody's Talking About Frax
“Students really enjoy how engaging Frax is. Surprising moment: we started our fractions unit and most of my students already know fraction vocabulary. How awesome!”- Frax Teacher, Baldwin Union Free School District, NY
“I love that Frax uses multiple models to help the students conceptually understand fraction magnitude. It gives them a deeper understanding. A student told me ‘I really get fractions now!’ He was so excited because fractions have been a real struggle for him.”- Frax Teacher, Steamboat Springs SD RE-2, CO
“Frax is by far the best tool I have found to help teach fractions. My students love doing Frax and keep asking to do it more often! They are feeling much more confident with fractions. One of my students said, ‘I already know so much about fractions thanks to Frax!’”- Frax Teacher, Dardanelle School District, AR
“My students love playing Frax! Teaching them fractions have never been easier. I feel like so many of the common misconceptions are corrected, and we have barely started whole group fraction instruction.”- Frax Teacher, Gilmer County School District, GA
“Our students set an individual ‘I can do hard things’ goal. One struggles with math and has no interest doing math or motivation to contribute. Since starting Frax he has asked to change his goal to complete all Frax missions by May so they he can receive his reward at the end of the year assembly.”- Frax Teacher, Ririe School District 252, ID
“Frax is helping my students understand the concepts better and approaching students in a way that I am unable to do. They are engaged and enjoying the missions because they are built like games. Students are even doing it on the weekend! Thank you!”- Frax Teacher, Malden Public Schools, MA
“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
