Video Games to Help Math Skills with Students

As stated in some research, video games usually get a bad rap with most people because of the “violence” and “brutality” found within the story line.  Well what about the good that they can do?  How about this town in Indiana that used this math video game to help their students work with math problems?

This is unique and absolutely brilliant that they are able to use these free, yea that is right FREE, online games to help the students learn and stay excited about their math learning.  I applaud these teachers for taking the initiative and finding something to have their students play with.  Check is out the link is below.

I played myself and yes, it is pretty cool!  More people should be incorporating these types of free online games into their curriculum to enhance our children and the adults that may need some brush up skills as well.
