In the standard version of the mathgame the learning content is integrated with the game mechanics. In the non-integration version content and mechanics are not connected. In each subgame and level, the player first receives proportional reasoning questions. These questions are the same as the assignments in the integrated version. When players have answered the questions, they can play the subgame. The subgame is adapted in such a way that no proportional reasoning skills are required to play the game.
