Purpose

Many kids, when they are younger, find that they learn math best from games found across the internet, but as they get older, the focus of their learning moves away from the games, into worksheets and lectures. They then learn to associated these things with work, rather than puzzles or games, and have trouble understanding the concepts without good graphical representations of them. The games we create are targeted towards high school students to provide them a fun and interactive way to learn the complex concepts taught in high school math classes.

Our Beginnings

We began when our high school math teacher, Jonathan Upperman, inspired Brandon Rozek to create new games for high school math classes. Brandon started working on what is now Darts, but he realized that he could not finish the game on his own, so he asked David Thames to help him on the project. Over the following months, we continued to search for more coders to recruit. By the next year we gained eight other people to make up the group we are today and were quickly and efficiently developing more games.

Description

We are a small but quickly expanding group of programmers, designers, and mathematicians that develops fun, educational games. These games give students a deeper understanding of topics by visualizing them through the games' graphics and interactive elements.
