Product Review of Mangahigh: Pinata Fever
This fast and furious game will have learners adding and subtracting positive and negative numbers quickly as they swing to break piñatas, earning points as they collect gifts. Difficulty increases in each of three levels, and plenty of built-in help teaches learners what they need to know, and promotes improvement where they lag.
Most likely targeted at sixth-grade learners, this game is useful for any student comfortable with adding and subtracting the full range of integers. It’s a fun way to get younger learners thinking ahead, and for older learners, it’s a great review with built-in incentives. It can also prepare learners to manipulate algebraic expressions and equations by solidifying foundational knowledge. Piñata Fever is best for individual play and study in a practice or review context.
