This document describes the kinds of equipment in the Emle. They currently focus primarily on the goal of integrating the relationships between fractions, decimals and visual representations of each.

Those that are currently implemented as weblets have links.

Handy for showing how 2/4 is the same as 1/2. 7-Apr-2001

- Circle Unit Fractions 2/4/8
Control a circle which adds a selected unit fraction to the already displyed unit fractional pie slices. A reset button clears the graphic. Available unit fractions are 1/2, 1/4 & 1/8.

- Solid Circle
Numerator (N) and denominator (D) control a graphic of a single pie slice of a single circle is shaded of N/D size.

- Rectangle/Fraction
Numerator (N) and denominator (D) control a horizontal rectangle graphic divided into D vertical bars, N of which are shaded.

- Solid Circle Fraction/Decimal
Numerator (N) and denominator (D). Like "Solid Circle" plus displays N/D fraction and the decimal value of N/D.

- Circle/Fraction/Decimal
Numerator (N) and denominator (D) radio buttons control a graphic of a shaded fraction of a circle. The circle is divided (rather than solid) into N pie slices of which D are shaded. Additionally, both the N/D fraction and its decimal equivalent are displayed.

Emle 5b2 - Dual Circle/Fraction/Decimal

- Circle Unit Fractions 3/9
Control a circle which adds a selected unit fraction to the already displyed unit fractional pie slices. A reset button clears the graphic. Available unit fractions are 1/3 & 1/9.

- Visualiztion of N Divided by D Becoming N Over D
A sequence showing a visualization of N divided by D transforming visually into one forth. For example:

. 1 . 1 1 - 4 --> - --> - . . 4 4

- Visualiztion of Five Based Dice for Adding Pairs
1 . 6 --> + 5 . . --> . . . . . . . . . . . . . . + + --> . . -->. . . . --> 4 + 10 = 14 . . . . . . . . . 3 . . . . . . . . . 8 --> + --> . . . . . 5 . . . . . . . . . .

- Circle/Fraction/Decimal Adder
Denominator 1 & 2 over Numerator 1 & 2, D1, D2, N1 & N2 control decimals and graphics of shaded pie slice of circle These are added to produce a third set of N/D, decimal and graphic.

- Rectangle Horizontaly & Verticaly Divided
Number of horizontal, H, and number of vertical, V, divisions to a rectangle grid. H & V control graphic display of the rectangle.

- Rectangle Horizontaly & Verticaly Divided Adder
Denominator 1 & 2 over Numerator 1 & 2, D1, D2, N1 & N2 control decimals and graphics of horizontaly & verticaly divided and shaded rectangle.

- Rectangle Horizontaly & Verticaly Divided Reduced
Numerator (N) over Denominator (D) control graphics of horizontaly, H, & verticaly, V, divided and D shaded parts of a rectangle. Where H divisions of the reduce value of the denominator and V is the LCD of D & N. Reduced values for D & N will also be displayed.

- Rectangle Horizontaly & Verticaly Divided Reducer
Numerator (N) over Denominator (D) control graphics of horizontaly, H, & verticaly, V, divided and D shaded parts of a rectangle. Where H & V divisions are controlled by user to see the look the purpose reducing the fraction.
