A New Kind of Math Game: Efficient Strategies for Adding and Subtracting

While most math video games ask students simply to do computations a calculator can give them, only DreamBox has developed the first math video game where students must choose good strategies for computing answers – something they can’t ever get from a calculator. Students love our DreamBox heroes – the Addition Action Avengers and the Super Subtraction Squad – and in this unique new game, students control these heroes to tame mobs of monsters and raging robots. As students master 3-digit addition and subtraction with whole numbers and decimals in other DreamBox lessons, they unlock this one–of–a–kind math game where they are challenged to use these heroes strategically to solve different problems. Watch this video to see how DreamBox Learning designed this game to develop deep number sense and critical thinking in a fun and engaging way.
