New Online Game from MIT for High School Math and Biology - Spring 2014 Pilot

01/21/2014 2:23 PM | Anonymous

MIT's Education Arcade and Scheller Teacher Education Program received a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to develop an immersive virtual learning experience supporting high school math and biology instruction. 

Working collaboratively with teachers, we have created The Radix Endeavor, a multi-player online game set on the Island of Ysola. 

The game incorporates:

A flexible web-based design – students can play anywhere, any time; in school or at home.

Quest-based learning aligned with the current standards in
Biology including Genetics, Ecosystems, Evolution, and Human Body Systems.

Math including Algebra, Geometry, and Statistics & Probability.
Teacher resources including video supports, classroom connections and student progress tracking.

Interested teachers are also invited to attend a day-long PD session, Using Games in the Classroom, scheduled for Wednesday, February 19 on the MIT campus. To learn more about the game or participate in the large-scale pilot scheduled for the Spring of 2014, visit www.radixendeavor.org.

The ATOMIC Mission is to ensure that every Connecticut student receives world-class education in mathematics by providing vision, leadership and support to the K-16 mathematics community and by providing every teacher of mathematics the opportunity to grow professionally.
