A true story from a New Mexico public middle school, in a pilot test of Empires

“A student broke his arm on the playground – I don’t mean a small break – it was a compound fracture.  It was just kind of hanging there, so we had him call his parents to meet him at the hospital and he got on the phone…I was standing there, and he said, “Can you wait to go there at 10AM… after math class?”  – S.M., 7th Grade Math Teacher

Story-based, strategic and collaborative, Empires will be a first-of-its kind math game, setting an entirely new standard in educational gaming. Empires goes beyond the traditional drill-and-repeat methodology currently seen in most math games by presenting math problems within the context of the story, resulted in a marked increase in student engagement and supporting understanding of mathematical thinking.  Get a first look at Empires, the next story-based online math game, soon to be released by the MidSchoolMath team. While learning about this classroom tool, you'll gain a greater understanding of how and why pretend play, story and student-to-student collaboration deepen learning.
