Slice Fractions: now available on Apple TV and with new levels!

Montreal, December 10, 2015 — Slice Fractions, the educational video game whose effectiveness was recently proven by the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM), is now available on Apple TV and has 32 new levels featuring addition. Designed by Ululab to introduce children to fractions, Slice Fractions has received prestigious awards such as the Apple Store’s Editors’ Choice and Best App of 2014.

“To be able to play with Slice Fractions using the new Apple TV remote control with Touch surface, we had to fully recode the game and redesign its user interface so that everything could be controlled by just a flick of the thumb,” explained Dany Joly, principal video game developer.

These 32 new levels will allow children to explore a counterintuitive, yet crucial aspect of learning fractions: addition. In this new chapter, children will have the chance to learn mathematical concepts while helping a little mammoth explore an enchanted forest. “Education Specialists at UQAM have validated the new mechanisms of the game, which allow kids to add fractions together even when the denominator is different,” said François Boucher-Genesse, principal game designer. In addition to validating the pedagogical approach, Stéphane Cyr, a professor in the Department of Mathematics at UQAM, conducted a research study which conclusively demonstrated that Slice Fractions significantly improves student performance—and in record time (3-minute highlight video).

Slice Fractions presents young learners (6 to 12 years old) with exciting challenges in a colourful, fascinating universe full of charming characters! The game is available on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Apple TV, as well as most Android devices. Ululab is a company dedicated to the development of sophisticated educational applications based on best practice pedagogical approaches.
