In Photo Friends, two children (or a child and adult) see their pictures in funny places with Gracie and her friends! Enjoy the giggles of looking like bunnies or flying through outer space in a rocket while making sure that all friends get fair shares. This game provides a fun way for children to equipartition. Equipartitioning is dividing a collection of objects into equal groups or a continuous whole into equal parts. It is an important skill that helps build children’s understanding of fractions, ratios, division, multiplication, number sense, and number composition.

One preschool girl takes a photo of another preschool girl that will be used as the face of characters in the Early Math with Gracie & Friends Photo Friends app.

Photo Friends is part of the four-game equipartitioning suite from Early Math with Gracie & Friends, a first-of-its-kind mobile app brand based in early learning sciences, rigorously researched and developed specifically for preschool classroom use. A randomized control trial demonstrated significant learning gains in children who used the Early Math with Gracie & Friends apps.

Early Math with Gracie & Friends is not just apps! Our research shows the importance of engaging learners in hands-on, non-digital play in the classroom and at home. In fact, for every Gracie & Friends app, we have created and researched around five hands-on activities! Find the entire curriculum in the digital Teacher’s Guide and explore activities for home in the Family Fun guide.
