The Center for Game Science at the University of Washington is challenging students to a Story Problem Challenge, in which they are learning algebra through an online game.
The challenge is designed to teach pre-algebra concepts and build enthusiasm for the study of math. The online game guides students through short levels that introduce concepts step by step. This helps build comprehension as they progress.
Short tutorials are offered, which are followed by a series of math problems that ask the student to use what they have learned to solve a problem. Throughout the entire process, the teacher can see through a dashboard which students are succeeding and which are advancing to the next level. The teacher can then assist as needed. When they master a concept, they advance to the next level.
