The educational landscape has changed over time. The current
generation of students is exposed to greater use of technology in
their daily life than ever before and it is but natural for them to
be involved in activities involving use of technological gadgets
and media. It is perhaps a natural order of evolution where new
methods are adopted and become the norm. This can be seen in the
slow and steady adoption of interactive media to engage and
facilitate students to learn.
Mango Learning, a unique amalgamation of educators and game
developers have identified this inherent need of students to
interact, analyze and assimilate information to learn and
comprehensively master topics. They believe that education is most
effective when the student is receptive and yearning for knowledge.
In order to provide a fulfilling learning experience they have
launched Decimals- a bouquet of educational modules for grades 4-7.
The modules teach the concepts and help students master Decimals,
by merging educational content with game mechanics complete with an
Outer Space theme.
The Decimals modules, developed according to prescribed K-12
syllabus and norms, explain the technique and concepts of Decimals
from two perspectives, Eastern and Western delivered in a lucid
manner by two virtual guides. This gives students a complete and
comprehensive view regarding the topic. This learning is further
honed through interactive games and their understanding of the
topic is then tested through comprehensive quizzes. This enables
the student, teacher and parents to gauge the student's learning
while keeping track of his progress in relation with his peers.
Available in 4 separate modules covering Addition, Subtraction,
Multiplication and Division for iPad, Kindle Fire and Android
tablets and priced at $ 2.99 each, Decimals lays down the
foundation for complete mastery of decimals in a fun yet
