App Overview

The DivisionFlow: Division, Re-Envisioned app has four unique ways to strengthen division skills. 

  • Enter the Flow: Timed practice
    • Normal: 5 seconds for each question
    • Beginner: 10 seconds for each question
  • Mad Minute: One minute to get as many correct as possible.
    • Easy: number range: 1 to 12 x 1 to 12
    • Hard: number range: 6 to 20 x 13 to 20
  • Beat the Clock: Answer as many division questions as possible in the time limit. Correct answers will buy more time, but problems get gradually harder as the user progresses. 
    • Easy
    • Normal
    • Hard
  • Reversals: Given a number, find a correct pair of factors.
    • Easy
    • Normal
    • Hard

Settings:

  • Reports: Information about problems, average time, and accuracy can be viewed on the app, or sent as a CSV file to an e-mail account 
  • Users: Individual user names can be created and their progress can be monitored
  • Music and sound effects can be turned off or on

Instructional Ideas

  • Use this app to allow students to work at their own pace and level of expertise with individual milestones and check points
  • Recommend this app for remediation work
  • Some of the levels can be quite challenging, allow pupils to work in small groups or teams to see if they can develop strategies to do better
Classroom Considerations

This app is part of the series of apps by the same developer, including FlowPlus (integer addition and subtraction skills) and MulitFlow (integer multiplication skills).

Pros

  • Easy to use
  • Clear graphics
  • Multiple ways to practice division skills
Cons

  • There is only a limited ability to set the level of difficulty of the problem sets. For example, you can't limit the practice to dividends and divisors between 1 and 12 (or 1 and 10) without remainders. Difficulty levels are only easy, normal, or hard. The easy mode seems to limit the numbers to those without remainders, but the numbers are fairly limited and the practice is not very comprehensive. The medium mode includes remainders.
