Abstract

In this study, an Augmented Reality (AR) application for the teaching of basic operations with fractions of the same denominator was made. Prototype Methodology was used for its develop. In the application striking figures designs are visualized in three-Dimensional (3D), to the students’ perspective, those help to represent the explanation in the best way with the process of the basic operations with fractions: Addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and an exercises section. All this is to the students comprehend the fractions topic totally, using computational technology as a support in the teaching-learning process in a dynamic, friendly, creative and innovate way, also easy to manipulate by the users, catching students attention to learn this kind of topics or even another in a significate way. The application was focused to fourth grade elementary students, it is important to say that nowadays an application like that do not exist. Once the application develop finished a demonstration of the application was done in a group of fourth grade students and a questionnaire was applied them, obtaining satisfactory results in their learning.
