We are not 100% aligned to any specific curriculum. The most universal of the curriculums in existence right now is Common Core, but it is not followed by every state in the U.S at this time. Since 2010, forty-one (41) of the fifty U.S. states have been members of the Common Core State Standards Initiative, while Alabama, Oklahoma, Texas, Virginia, Alaska, Nebraska, Indiana and South Carolina did not adopt the initiative at a state level.
We chose not to align to Common Core because it is very polarizing, and there is a good chance it will be phased out within the next 5 years. There are other standards, such as the national standards, but those also are highly scrutinized.
While the Math Wizard and the Secrets of the Dragons game is not aligned to a particular curriculum or state standard, the game does take into account specific skills and learning tools that are taught in the classroom.
For example, the game helps children to learn parts of both the Imperial and Metric system by using two types of rulers. Players use these two rulers in order to measure the dragons they encounter in the game.
Math Wizard and the Secrets of the Dragons gives children the ability to practice the following skills:
1. standard measurements (rulers with centimeters and inches);
2. non-standard measurement (measuring using food tiles);
3. counting and estimation.
