## Thank you for downloading Hungry Geese!

Hungry Geese is a math game that gives students practice comparing whole numbers, decimals, fractions, and integers. Feed the goose by touching the greater number, and the goose will eat it. Players get immediate visual and auditory feedback about which number they choose. This game has 12 levels that get more challenging as you go. This app benefits elementary and middle school students, and it can also be used in special education.

## Hungry Geese targets the following Common Core Standards:

**K.CC.7**- Compare two numbers between 1 and 10 presented as written numerals.

**1.NBT.3**- Compare two two-digit numbers based on meanings of the tens and ones digits, recording the results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, and <.

**2.NBT.4**- Compare two three-digit numbers based on meanings of the hundreds, tens, and ones digits, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons.

**3.NF.3d**- Compare two fractions with the same numerator or the same denominator by reasoning about their size. Record the results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.

**4.NF.2**- Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators, e.g., by creating common denominators or numerators, or by comparing to a benchmark fraction such as 1/2. Record the results of comparisons with symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.

**4.NF.7 -**Compare two decimals to hundredths by reasoning about their size. Record the results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual model.

**5.NBT.3b**- Compare two decimals to the thousandths based on the meaning of the digits in each place, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons.

**6.NS.7**- Understand ordering and absolute value of rational numbers. Interpret statements of inequality as statements about the relative position of two numbers on a number line diagram.

## Support

**The background music and sound effects are not playing.**

If you are using iOS 5.0, you need to restart your device. Then it should play the background music and sound effects appropriately.

**What do I do if both numbers are the same?**

When both numbers are the same, they are equal to each other. Click on either one, and the goose's beak will change to an equal sign, and you will soon move on to the next question.

**Two decimals were the same, but it said one was greater than the other.**

This is a known bug that we are working on fixing. The app generates random long decimals and truncates them to a specific place value for display. However, the original values are what the app reads to determine if one is greater than another. For example, the screen may read 1.8 > 1.8 because 1.87342 > 1.82975.

**What if I have other questions?**
