SuperflatMath: a videogame at school!

A videogame at school? Is that a joke? It is Absolutely not a joke! SuperflatMath is a videogame made to guide children, boys and girls into the amazing world of Mathematics. In a sandbox environment you will gather, create and destroy blocks of numbers to solve puzzles of any kind. Tutors will guide you through the installation of the videogame on your PC and in the different game activities, and in the fun world of SuperflatMath. The software is available on Personal Computers with Windows (7 or 10), Mac OS X, and Linux operating systems. The activities are dedicated only to age 7-13. Teachers are also welcome to attend the workshop.
