Go to your profile page and click on “Your Stats.” Scroll down to the fraction division section. You will notice six topics that need to be mastered. When the circle below each topic turns green, it indicates mastery. Place your cursor on the topic name for a more detailed description.
After you log out of the game, the Rollerdillos will no longer reside on your ranch, although the ranch will remain on your island. Our future plans are to keep the Rollerdillos on your ranch.
Go to your profile page and click on “Your Stats.” Scroll down to the fraction multiplication section. You will notice four topics that need to be mastered. When the circle below each topic turns green, it indicates that you have mastered that particular topic. Place your cursor on the topic name for a more detailed description.
Yes, all finished buildings, farms, ranches and factories will be saved. In the future, you will also be able to save unfinished games.
There are four different fraction multiplication topics that need to be mastered before completing the game. When you reach improper x proper and improper x improper topics, the farms will automatically become larger.
Once you reach the cross simplification level, a tool will be available to assist you. Click on the numbers that have a common factor, and the tool will appear.
If you try to water a specific area on your farm and you don’t have enough water then you will lose a turn. When you reach the cross simplification topic, you will also lose a turn if you forget to simplify your answer before you click the red dial. Submitting a wrong answer will also cause you to lose a turn.
As you play the game for a period of time, power-ups will appear on the left-hand side of the screen. Power-ups can only be used when it is your turn. (Power-ups are earned by simplifying answers and successfully defeating weeds)
The game allows you to water more than one rectangular box at a time. Drag your touchpad or mouse to highlight the area that you want to water. The area that turns blue will be watered.
The numbers labeled on the plants tell you when a particular plant will grow offshoots (branches). When the plant is labeled a 5, it will grow offshoots after it is watered. If the plant has a label of 1, 2, 3, or 4, it will move to the next highest number once it is watered.
Go to your profile page and click on “Your Stats.” Scroll down to the fraction addition section. When the circle below each topic (five of them) turns green, it indicates mastery.
There are five levels to master before completing the game. As mastery is gained, you will move through five progressively harder problem types – each involving new conceptual understanding. Within each problem type, you will improve your procedural fluency progressing from easy to harder denominator combinations.
There are two tools that can assist you. One is the sketchpad. Click on the sketchpad icon next to each of the rows and the sketchpad will appear. You also have the option to click on the fraction next to the row and change it into a mixed number if it is an improper fraction.
The bat like creature is called a Gruffin, and he is your assistant. In order to adapt to each player’s level, the 2nd brick is given to the player so that the problem that needs to be solved is appropriate for your level.
If the brick you choose is not correct, then it will not remain in the row. If you choose two incorrect bricks, the game will take you to a tutorial on a problem that is similar to the one you are trying to solve. Once the tutorial is complete you will then go back and solve the original problem.
As you fill adjacent rows you receive extra turns. Throughout the game, the player will be presented with numerous opportunities to obtain extra turns such as finding an equivalent fraction, determining a brick’s size, and filling up a specific row.
Look for an equivalent fraction.
The more rows you submit at one time, the higher chance of getting more bonus bricks when you spin the spinner.
The creatures (varmints) block spaces in the rows (except the bottom row). To remove the varmints, submit one or more of the rows below the varmints to scare them off.
You must click on the submit circle next to each finished row and then click on the submit rows button at the top of all the rows.
