What a shame! Almost a fantastic learning resource – the game engine it is based on is a very high standard and one that will be enjoyed by students. However the frustration is that there is no flexibility in terms of where you can start in the game. This means that a child will need to spend a substantial amount of time playing the early introductory levels of the game before they get to stages which will develop and test their knowledge of fractions and decimals. If it were possible for the player to jump straight to a certain level then this would be a much more effective learning tool for use in classrooms.
