I don't know about you but when I was at school, which wasn't so long ago, I had terrible troubles with fractions - and maths in general. I did alright in the end, but I could have done with some help.

In fact something like MixedUp would have been very handy indeed. It's a simple application that tests your knowledge of fractions and rewards you with points for every calculation you get correct.

Just load MixedUp onto your Palm and get started. You won't need any instructions because of the clear mathematical display that demands you answer the equation.

On one side of the equals sign you have a fraction and on the other side only half. You must fill the gap with a number to balance the equation.

Get it right and you get an 'Excellent' and a point. Get it wrong and it's extra homework for you. The difficulty is aimed at younger school children and you never know they might find it fun!

MixedUp is a simple learning tool. In MixedUp you must convert fractions to mixed numbers or vice versa. For each correct conversion you score 1 point.

MixedUp is primarily meant for pupils in the lower grades. MixedUp is released under the GNU General Public License v2 and requires Palm OS 3.
