Jamit
Fractions is a unique math
educational software for learning fractions online, suitable for
students from 8 years old to adults. The program features 10
topics. Each topic is presented in a short lesson with complete
references, examples, and an individual practice game for the
current topic to ensure that the topic is thoroughly learned.
Jamit Fractions is not just a few practice
drills or a big fancy game with few simply questions. This is a
whole learning environment, which ensures a
good understanding of each topic and
mastering it to perfection. Each lesson contains a
complete reference, written in a simple and clear language. The
use of HTML allowed for cross linking of terms, definitions and
examples (for example, if a student does not remember what the
denominator is, he can easily click on the word, read the
definition and come back).
Each of the 10 lessons has its own,
completely different practice game.
The game generates fraction problems to be solved. The student
has all the help at hand. He can access corresponding references
and examples without leaving the game, he can ask just for a
little hint or request a solution with a full explanation. It is
just a click of a button, and the rewarding system encourages
independent thinking.
HINT pops up a
little hint which helps to understand the problem and
encourages thinking.
HELP displays the manual information, as which key to press etc.
LESSON displays a corresponding
references in a new window (it is a good idea to close
the window when finished reading)
SOLVE shows the solution
WHY (this button shows after SOLVE is pressed)
displays a window with a detailed, step by step
explained solution
EXAMPLE opens a new reference window
with the corresponding example (again, it is good to
close it)
NEXT presents the next problem. It needs to be
pressed only if the student cannot solve the problem himself. If
the student gives a correct solution, the next problem is
generated automatically. There is always a penalty for pressing
this button, but the penalty is small if the student pressed the
SOLVE and WHY buttons before. This way the student
learns on his own errors.
TOO EASY and TOO HARD allows
to change a difficulty level.
There are 4 difficulty levels:
level 1 (easy), which does not cover all the
topics in full depth, suitable for younger children,
level 2 (basic), covers all the basic
concepts, but uses small numerals,
level 3 (advanced), bigger numerals,
level 4 (difficult), for the people who enjoy
big numbers.
