Fun with fraction flags

http://spicytooth.co.uk/public_html/FractionFlags/fractinoflags.swf is an application which allows learners to practise fractions in a fun way.

When presented with a blank flag and instructions to make a flag with 2 colours, learners will typically make a simple half and half flag. They soon discover that there are many other possibilities and it often becomes a competition on who can come up with the most unusual  design.

Options includes halves, quarters, a half and 2 quarters, three-quarters and a quarter.

A separate application for practising thirds can found here.
