An innovative path to teach and learn Math
Some of the schools that have embraced the project
The educational aim of SuperFlat Math is to promote game-based learning through the integration of students’ activities in the video game, reflective exercises on paper, and classroom discussion activities, in line with the latest teaching methodologies.
SuperFlat Math has already been successfully in tens of Primary and Middle schools in Itali, and it was experimented in various field trials conducted by the University of L’Aquila and Sapienza University of Rome. The field trials have highlighted how this methodology is capable of promoting inclusion and stimulating metacognitive reflections, as reported in national and international conference proceedings.
Which are the educational activities of Superflat Math?
SuperFlat Math is not just a video game but an integrated teaching and learning methodology. The educational activities involve a learning cycle consisting of distinct phases: individual play on a sandbox video game, a questionnaire that promotes mathematical reflections, an activity for peer comparison, and an open discussion organized and guided by the teacher. This innovative approach has received positive feedback from both students and teachers.
Students are engaged by the math puzzles within a unique cube-based world, enjoying their progress in the game.
It is important to transfer the concepts learned in the game to the regular school context through paper-based activities and peer discussion.
Through a classroom discussion that starts from the game activities, the teacher can lead the class to verbalize and collectively share the mathematical meanings and the problem-solving strategies.
