Star Dash Studios is a free runner game that challenges you to train as a runner on a film set and complete puzzles on the way.
In this running game, your character is the runner on a film set and has to complete a number of challenges to progress through the game, learn how to impress the director, and win promotion to a better job on set.
Star Dash Studios offers a creative, colourful and challenging chase around a movie studio where you have the chance to train yourself to improve your mental maths and to learn number skills.
Numeracy is more than just knowing how to multiply figures, add sums and do arithmetic, it’s about knowing the maths you need for everyday life and work. Playing games adds to the speed of learning new skills and aids mental development, and the challenges on the film set in Star Dash Studios help you in training your brain to solve numeracy problems and learn mathematics.
So if you’re sitting at a bus stop, waiting for a friend, or looking for something to do, why not make the most of your time and learn new maths skills as you run through the challenges in Star Dash Studios?

A little introduction
Some of the mathematical concepts need to be explained/taught, however briefly. I'm terrible at percentages and have no idea what I'm doing, so you can imagine my vague frustration at the accountant who keeps telling me in doing the tasks wrong.
I just need a little guidance mate. I'm new to this.
Star Dash Estimations...
I saw this app advertised in the news and thought I would try it out for my children (honest!). There are a few areas that need correcting, namely the estimations. For example helping the special effects expert launching the rocket at 65% was very random. I think even with a protractor it would be difficult. Maybe increase the dead band? Same applies to cutting the wood. The games a great idea but needs to be accurate.
Great runner game mixed with mini game quests and challenges. The speed picks up as you improve so it becomes fast and furious, also you can do extra maths puzzles and quizzes if you like them and want to earn more coins! My favourite is paying the extras wages. Love this challenge. Fun learning and maths practice online for free.
