Navigate the number line while diving among shipwrecks and sunken ruins. Will you find a pearl, or an old boot? Watch out for the electric eel! Pearl Diver teaches properties of numbers, how to plot numbers, how to visualize quantity on the number line, how to order numbers, and how to use the number line as a visual model for mathematical operations.

Accessibility Review

Pearl Diver is a game designed to help students conceptualize how positive and negative numbers are distributed on a number line. The diver must reach the correct depths, noted as spots on the number line, to retrieve pearls hidden in clamshells. After the completion of each level, the player is given a bonus minigame and is challenged to use fraction skills to gain extra points. While attempting to gather hidden pearls, the player must avoid touching electric eels that randomly spawn. Additionally, each level has a time limit and the player is further challenged to retrieve the pearls before time expires.

While the game is playable on mobile devices and tablets, it is extremely reliant upon precision and may not be suitable for players with fine motor issues or eye hand coordination difficulties. Unfortunately, Pearl Diver does not possess a practice mode to allow players to familiarize themselves with the game’s controls, nor does it feature an option allowing players to remap keys. Lastly, this game is also reliant on visual graphics and may not be accessible to visually impaired players.
