Visit support site to get more information about obtaining game access codes to students.The Semideus School game is a really fun way to learn fractions, decimals, and percentages. By playing Semideus, learners improve their ability to perceive and estimate rational numbers in multiple forms. The adventure happens in Mount Olympos. The task of the player, Semideus, is to find the gold coins that Gobolas the Goblin has stolen from Zeus. On the way to Mount Olympos, Semideus has to chase the goblin, seek the coins, avoid traps, and crush math based enemies.FEATURES- Seek the stolen coins, avoid traps, crush the enemies, and catch the thief- Innovative number line based gameplay and feedback systemOver 60 levels including approximately 600 rational number tasks- Ask help from loveable learning companions - Amazing hint system- Learning analytics includedPlay in a safe, digital environment. No ads or in-app purchases.- Gameplay is derived from latest research and designed together with Finnish researchers (TUT Game Lab)- English and Finnish languages MATH CONCEPTS- Rational number magnitude estimation, comparing, and ordering- Numerator / Denominator notation- Proper fractions, improper fractions, mixed numbers, decimal numbers, and percentages- Equivalence- Density of rational numbers- Adding, subtracting, expanding, and reducing fractionsRATIONAL NUMBER REPRESENTATIONSSemideus game helps learners to perceive and estimate different rational number representations -- numerator over denominator (1/2), decimals (0.5), pie charts, area models, and percentages (50%).USER INTERFACEIn the Semideus game learners experience the number line physically while their character is walking on it. The tilting-based user interface solution is founded on embodied cognition approach, suggesting that connecting the body to abstract concepts can support understanding.
