The adoption of smart devices in the field of education has revolutionized the process of learning. It can be said that this is in tune with evolutionary trends where new practices are adopted to keep up with new behavioral and social norms. The current generation of students has been exposed to technology and smart devices from an early age and has adopted the same as the preferred medium of interaction, source of information and communication in general. It is but natural that educational content has to be re-imagined keeping in mind the needs and expectations of the students.

Mango Learning, a team dedicated towards analyzing and developing educational content tailored for the modern student has launched Fun with Fractions, a bouquet of educational modules which comprehensively explain and encourage students to learn the topic of fractions. The team at Mango Learning comprising of educators and game developers have incorporated prescribed curriculum standards to create a unique blend where tutorials are merged with game mechanics to give students a fulfilling and engaging learning experience.

Fun with Fractions is an exclusive bouquet of 4 modules which gives students an introduction to fractions and lays down the basics which form the core of Fractions. The interactive tutorials are explained in a lucid manner by a friendly virtual guide using visual examples which provide for an in depth understanding of each topic. These are supplemented by mini games which help students assimilate the concepts learned in an entertaining and engaging manner stoking their competitive spirit. The quizzes at the module test the students' learning and report their progress towards mastering the concepts of fractions. 

The four modules are:

- Introduction

- Mixed

- Like/Unlike

- Add/Sub

Fun with Fractions, priced at $2.99 per module has been developed for iPad and Android tablets. It is the perfect introduction into the world of fractions and is an effective supplement to traditional teaching to ensure that students have fun while learning. Mastering the modules gives students a lot of confidence and gears them up for some serious fun while progressing further towards comprehensively understanding fractions.
