We currently cover the Common Core and TEKS fraction standards for 3rd grade and we will be filling in the remaining fractions standards for 4th and 5th quickly. We don't know yet exactly when.
For now we have been rather stunned by our initial research results. Nearly all of the students we have assessed so far have shown a tremendous need to review these foundational fractions concepts. As a result, we are very eager to help students truly master these foundational concepts so that they will be prepared as soon as our additional curiculum becomes available?
Naturally, that will depend on how much they currently have to learn. In our research so far students seem to follow a rough bell curve from 1 to 20 hours. So the fastest finishers can (and should) test out in their first session or two, while the deeply struggling students can possibly require 20 hours.
We recommend two 30-minute sessions per week so that struggling students will have sufficient time to master fractions?
We recommend starting 4th grades and higher immediately. Our research shows that they are all usually lacking significant fluency and confidence with our most basic fractions concepts. Starting them early will give even your struggling students to master these pre-requisite skills before you start trying to teach them new concepts.
We're not currently aware of any bugs in the game. If you find one please use the in-game bug reporter to send us as much information about it as you can. Thank you!
