Montreal, November 27, 2019 - Alloprof is launching Raton des conversions, a fun mathematics mobile application intended for students of 5e and 6e primary year.

The game aims to sharpen their understanding of the mechanics of converting units of length and its design was made possible through the Ubisoft Education program. The company has invested 50,000 $ to help Alloprof develop innovative and practical resources in elementary mathematics.

Gluttonous raccoons for learning conversions 

In order to avoid waste, the player must practice converting measures, which allows his gluttonous raccoon to eat as much food as possible from the city's garbage cans.

The student is exposed to a simple and effective method of correctly arranging the digits and the decimal point of the number to be converted in a conversion matrix. He learns to apply this method to units of length, then can transpose it to other types of units that he will see throughout his school career, both in mathematics and science. These are nearly 150,000 students from 5e and 6e year who should benefit from this free application.

“At Alloprof, we have always observed that converting units is a challenge for many students, sometimes up to 5e secondary. In addition to helping overcome this recurring pitfall, the Ubisoft Education program allows us to enhance our offer on mobile platforms, where half of the support we provide comes from. The Raton conversions application is added to our range of games to consolidate learning, especially during long holidays such as the holiday season, ”explains Marc-Antoine Tanguay, spokesperson and director of strategy for Alloprof.

“We wanted to partner with Alloprof to create the Raton conversions application, because we strongly believe that by alleviating the difficulties encountered in mathematics from elementary school onwards, we are contributing to the success of the entire school career of young people in Quebec. Since its launch in 2018, the Ubisoft Education program has supported more than 11,000 students, from elementary to university, thanks to various initiatives and the involvement of more than 200 of our employees. And that's only the beginning! ”Said Yannis Mallat, CEO of Ubisoft Canadian Studios.

Raton of conversions downloadable from Google Play and iOS.
