Openness

All the files necessary are available online. The project is open to new approaches and there is room for the imagination of everyone to help kids really understand math and make this product more complete.

Ecosystem

Parents, older brothers, other kids can play the board game with smaller children and offer alternative solutions (so that kids understand that math is not just about one correct answer). In school, the whole class can play together with the teacher and then create groups of four to play together. The project is also very effective with autistic children.
