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.
The activities have been designed to engage pupils into Math Discussions and to cover specific Math subjects for all classes from 8 to 12 years-old children. We have used the videogame and its web app for teachers during a field trial in primary and middle school in presence and at distance in the lockdown period.
