What it does
Fraction Kit
is a substantial applet that operates on seven different levels, starting with creating your own set of fractions. Using this personal fraction kit, you are taken through a series of tasks including adding and comparing fractions. A key feature of the applet is that you are able to toggle between pictures of a fraction (slices of a pie) and the conventional fraction notation (two numbers separated by a quotient line).

How to use it
Fraction Kit is first opened, you are invited to create your own fraction kit. Once this kit has been created, you have access to the other six levels.
