Race across a futuristic world while solving challenging fraction problems. Earn new cars and new tracks while learning how to solve fractions.

Ratio Racer is a game based on the elements of simple and complex fractions where the player must quickly solve math problems in order to advance levels. The game uses math comprehension to develop cognitive math skills. The touch mechanic of the game engages children in a hands-on learning process, implementing kinesthetic learning.

The game incorporates math comprehension attuned to the particular grade level, based upon excerpts from grade-appropriate math materials.

All components of the game are developed in-house. The Virginia Standards of Learning targeted are for:

MATH

3.6 (3rd grade)
compare the numerical value of two fractions having like and unlike denominators, using concrete or pictorial models involving areas/regions, lengths/measurements, and sets.

4.2 (4th grade)
a) identify, model, and compare rational numbers (fractions and mixed numbers), using concrete objects and pictures
b) represent equivalent fractions
c) relate fractions to decimals, using concrete objects.

4.3 (4th grade)
compare the numerical value of fractions (with like and unlike denominators) having denominators of 12 or less, using concrete materials.

5.2 (5th grade)
a) recognize and name commonly used fractions (halves, fourths, fifths, eighths, and tenths) in their equivalent decimal form and vice versa
b) order a given set of fractions and decimals from least to greatest. Fractions will include like and unlike denominators limited to 12 or less, and mixed numbers.

6.6 (6th grade)
a) solve problems that involve addition, subtraction, multiplication, and/or division with fractions and mixed numbers, with and without regrouping, that include like and unlike denominators of 12 or less, and express their answers in simplest form
