In this scenario, students explore fractions and ratios by moving their bodies up and down. In particular, they discover equivalency and comparison between fractions with different denominators in a fun and collaborative manner. A set of flexible configuration options allow educators to create multiple versions of the scenario that are suited to the needs of their students.
