“PonderUp” is a pleasant game that helps children practice the comparison of numbers and/or quantities i.e. “find the greater” and “find the lesser” or "find the odd" and "find the even". The child becomes a little frog in a lake that makes side movements in an effort to choose the correct answer at a given question. The child sees two bubbles that contain numbers and/or quantities and/or math operations that should be compared. The child, i.e. the little frog, has to move left or right, stand under the bubble with the correct answer, and jump to break it. The messages “Find the greatest”, “Find the less” or "Find the odd", "Find the even" or “Get in the middle” give instructions to the child for making movements accordingly.

The teacher has full control of the game-based learning activities, i.e. he/she can choose whether the child will be asked to compare only numbers, only quantities, fractions or include math operations thus adjusting the difficulty level of the exercise. Also, there is a time-delay option for children who cannot jump

Are you ready to jump high like a frog?
