I just found an interesting game online. I just downloaded the demo. It is a first person shooter using the Torque engine and it is designed to teach algebra. This is prety cool because I love FPS games and I'm going to be taking an algebra class in a month. I thought I'd post this for anyone who would like a cool algebra learning game or just finds the concept bizarre enough to look into. haha.

My reaction to the demo is that the enemies seemed a tad on the easy side, but I was learning math. Just a nice refresher course on the x and y axis and using a grid. I'm actually considering buying this for my algebra class, lol.

Little update: I guess the game has online multiplayer too. LOLZ!

Haha, time to do fractions and chew bubblegum, and I'm all out of gum.

Message to superintendent: Sent.

I could see a lot of kids less reluctant to learn math (Er, that is, want to...)

But it is really easy, in all aspects. Like you said, teach it to 7 year olds!

LOL, more like, "Homework now takes a lot longer, but at least it is more interesting, no?".
