From the inventors of the SMART Board!
Monsters vs. Fractions combines tactile and digital learning techniques for a fun, immersive Fractions adventure.
Our crew of friendly Monsters needs to repair all the broken machines in the food processing facility! Dr. Chaos is still on the run, and inter-dimensional portals are beginning to appear.
Monsters vs Fractions: Episode 2 is a great way to introduce Common Fractions and allow students to gradually progress toward mastery. Students will be engaged with interesting characters and storylines, all while learning the basics needed to advance their knowledge of Common Core fractions.
Brought to you by the inventors of the SMART Board, Monsters vs. Fractions Episode 2 combines tactile and digital learning techniques, encouraging kids to interact with on-screen manipulatives in numerous ways:
• Identify Common Fractions as a colored part of an evenly divided shape
• Match recipe ingredients by dialing in the correct numerator and denominator
• Destroy dangerous orbs by determining which fraction is larger
• Slice up shapes into unequal parts…then launch them at the bad guys using a number line
• Race through the conveyor maze by choosing which of two Common Fractions is larger
For Teachers and Parents who are looking for a game-based alternative for teaching Common Fractions, Monsters vs Fractions offers an immersive adventure for the classroom and home.
Most game-based learning solutions follow the repetition-based ‘drill and kill’ paradigm – essentially a digital form of a worksheet or quiz that alternates with arcade-style game play. While these are effective for reinforcing concepts already learned in the classroom, they don’t allow students to explore, manipulate, or make mistakes on their own.
Monsters vs. Fractions instead introduces students to basic concepts within the game mechanics, allowing them to interactively explore and develop proficiency while remaining immersed in the storyline. When students have trouble, the game provides timely hints and suggestions in context of the challenge and users are encouraged to work through mistakes with positive reinforcement.
The Monsters vs. Fractions series is based on research and feedback provided by students, parents, teachers, and administrators. The learning objectives have been integrated by a highly experienced instructional designer to meet common-core requirements while entertaining young learners.
