# Fraction bars | Fraction tiles (with text)

Create fraction bars (tiles) using the ProperFraction tool. You can change the fraction tile's colour
with the Style Bar.
This virtual manipulative is a great way for students to explore and understand how parts make
up a whole. Fraction tiles provide a concrete and interactive way to understand fractions,
comparing fractions, equivalent fractions, and adding fractions.

**If you accidentally enter the wrong number, don't worry**- the tool will automatically generate a fraction with a denominator of maximum value 20 or minimum value 1 and a numerator between 1 and the denominator's value.
