Description

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.

Customer Reviews

Excellent Math Game

This is the perfect game to get kids into fractions! In the classroom or at home. The art and music are very unique, giving the levels a fresh feel as you save the world solving math problems.

I even had to pause on some of the later parts and think about how to solve the problems.

Great job, well worth the $0.99!

Fun game

My 8 year old niece really enjoyed playing this game. The easy setting was just about right for her math skill level.
