Review:

Slice Fractions from Ululab is a refreshing app that not only teaches children about fractions, but encourages learning about them. The distinction is important. You can teach something to a child in many ways, but the most effective is often through play that encourages continued participation and progress. This app succeeds very well in that area.

Through a series of levels, players are exposed to fractions through a fun but simple play structure. As learners move through the levels, 60 puzzles in all, they are taught more and more about fractions and have to solve more complex scenarios - all through play. There is no instructor, there are no words or audible instructions. All learning is achieved through leveled interactive play that encourages the player to continue moving forward.

The graphics, animations, and gameplay are well deigned, super cute and extremely appealing. Slice Fractions is wholly playful learning. At its best.
