System Requirements. Product Support. Mia wants to know how this happened and if she could have possibly prevented the fire. She turns to her friend, Sam Squirrel, a scientific genius, for help.
Players take Mia on a quest through her garden and neighborhood viewed from a mouse's perspective in search of "sparklies" and the four missing parts. By solving a wide variety of math challenges along the way, players earn the necessary parts to assemble the time machine.
Once the time machine is successfully constructed, players journey back in time to help Mia solve the mystery of the fire, conquering more math challenges along the way.
Concepts include sense, geometry, spatial orientation, time, mental computation addition, subtraction, multiplication, divisionmeasuring temperature, comparing and estimating s, fractions and problem solving. The creators of this program are definitely curriculum savvy. The skill practiced in each challenge can be made more or less difficult depending upon which of the four levels the player selects. Unfortunately, the level cannot be adjusted mid-adventure; it is selected at the beginning of play.
In addition to these challenges, users can, at any time, choose to play activities only. The rich 3-D graphics, lively music and charming animation make it easy for kids and parents, too to enjoy this program. The math challenges are engaging, and the quest for the missing parts endows the tasks with meaning. The characters, from Mia the mouse to Romaine the rat and Scary the spider, all have personality. Although the math activities seem appropriate for the targeted age levelnew players may encounter some difficulty figuring out how to navigate the program. This is a very clever way to provide support to less-experienced players; the more you click, the more precise the clues become.
While the quest is rather lengthy, the activities-only option is well suited for use in a classroom environment, providing students with a fun way to practice skills they have already learned. The instructions movie provides this information in an entertaining fashion; it can be accessed from the options menu by pressing the F2 key.
Along the way, it is helpful for Mia to pick up items that may be of use mias math adventure in the game "sparklies", a whistle, a drill bit, etc. It may take a while for players to learn where to look; in the meantime, click everywhere. Although the activities-only option is a valuable one, it is a bit tedious switching between the two disks to complete those tasks.
The four difficulty levels provide for new learning experiences with repeat usage. While the quest is best suited for home use, the activities-only option would provide fun math review in a classroom setting.
