Discover gems hidden by the legendary dragon, the Firedrake. Explore and practice skills with number lines and coordinate graphs in 3 levels, each with 4 activities of increasing difficulty.
•Background story of Firedrake and hidden treasure provides an intriguing reason for using math location skills.
•In Level 1, players find points on horizontal and vertical number lines (0 to 10), then add or subtract to find new locations on the number line.
•Levels 2 and 3, which use coordinates graph, include recognition format, in which players choose the correct answer from three choices, so they can check their understanding before finding points on their own with coordinates in an applied format.
•In Level 2, players recognize and find points on a coordinate graph (0 to 10 on each axis), then add or subtract integers from initial positions to find new locations.
•In Level 3, players recognize and find points on a coordinate graph (-10 to 10 on each axis), then add or subtract integers from initial positions to find new locations.
•Younger and less experienced players can use counting strategy until they become comfortable with adding and subtracting.
•Requires only single touches; players can also move the Firedrake by touching and dragging it from one point to another.
•Game-like environment provides immediate feedback in a non-busy setting conducive to thoughtful exploration.
•Self-contained; children will not see ads and will not have access to in-app purchases or Internet from within this app.
