Starting today, primary school students in grades 5 and 6 will be able to enjoy the Raton Conversions mobile app, a fun learning experience that aims to hone their understanding of converting length measurements. Ubisoft Education is proud to support Alloprof in developing innovative and practical math resources for the primary level.
How does it works?
The app invites the student to feed a greedy racoon who must eat as much food as possible in the city’s garbage cans, all while avoiding waste. To sustain his hairy companion, the student will have to practice converting measurements using a simple and effective method that consists of correctly arranging the numbers and the decimal point within the matrix. Using this entertaining app, students learn how to apply this method to length units and then transfer their knowledge to other types of measurements that they will encounter throughout their school years, both in math and science.
Helping Quebec Students where it counts
Nearly 150,000 students in grades 5 and 6 are expected to benefit from this free application.
“At Alloprof, we have always seen that unit conversion is a challenge for many students, sometimes even up to the Secondary 5 level. In addition to helping overcome this recurrent barrier, the Ubisoft Education program allows us to improve our service through mobile platforms, which represents half of the support that we provide. The Raton Conversions app adds to our range of very useful games to reinforce learning, especially during long school vacations such as the holiday break, “says Marc-Antoine Tanguay, Spokesperson and Director of Strategy at Alloprof.
“We wanted to partner with Alloprof to create the Raton Conversions app, because we strongly believe that by reducing the difficulties encountered in math from the elementary level onwards, we successfully contribute to the entire educational path of Quebec youth. Since its launch in 2018, the Ubisoft Education program has supported more than 11,000 students, from the elementary to the university level, through various initiatives and the participation of more than 200 of our employees. And that’s just the beginning! ” said Yannis Mallat, CEO of Ubisoft’s Canadian studios.
