5 Lessons Learned while Building Mathbreakers

July 3rd - via: blog.up.co
As a small independent studio with big dreams to transform math education through fun video games, we discovered that the “education sector” is much broader than it first seemed. A year and a half ago, our team set out to create an educational game that kids would actually enjoy playing. We soon learned that our target demographic — kids between the ages of 7-12 — does not simply exist in a vacuum. The entire education market, in fact, consists of an intertwining network of parents, teachers, districts, students, and other groups with varying needs. Each of these groups may directly or indirectly influence the type of educational products and services that are used by other groups. (Read More)

Playing with Math and more

July 2nd - via: mathforlove.com
Early summer is a great time of year in Seattle and Eastern WA, where we’re splitting our time right now. We’ve been pouring energy into a few projects: launching our new game, Prime Climb; supporting Seattle Summer School with curriculum and professional development support; piloting a Math for Love summer camp, which just wrapped up after an excellent week; and setting up for fall. But in the midst of this, there has been some moments to down-regulate, and these times to breathe have been vital. I’ve gotten to read and take walks and relax, and I can feel my mind expanding as it gets a chance to rest. (Read More)

Interview With the Minds Behind Mathbreakers

June 27th - via: liftedgeek.com
Educational games rarely get the buzz the triple A games get, understandably so with everything from Leap Star games to whatever lacking in polish games parents download that feature that new "in" cartoon character to teach kids about where the commas go. Now ever wonder why that is? Why hasn't anything new really captured a kid's attention since you had to chase a globe trotting international thief with a penchant for red trench coats? The answer is simple, because the back catalog of educational games featuring Shrek teaching kids to spell... suck... (Read More)

Kickstarter Pick: Mathbreakers allows kids to explore math visually and experientially

June 26th - via: indiegames.com
Educational games are some of the hardest to make. It's difficult to balance fun with educational, especially if you want to be able to put the game into classrooms. Teachers need to be able to somehow measure students' progress to be sure that any games they use are furthering their classroom goals. Mathbreakers from Imaginary Number Co., which has already been tested with kids in classrooms, turns mathematical concepts into game systems with visual feedback that children can experiment with so that they internalize those concepts. (Read More)

How to Make Math Learning Fun -- and Effective

June 5th - via: huffingtonpost.com
Math has always been known as one of the less-glamorous subjects. Sure, there are people who love the rhythm and reason of mathematical concepts, but average Kindergartners won't tell you that they want to be an engineer, or a mathematician, or even a computer scientist when they grow up. But if every Kindergartner grew up to be a fireman, or movie star, or race car driver, or pilot, our society would certainly suffer. (Read More)
