We give teachers a 25-hour day
Every teacher who has ever been grading papers at 11 pm in his or her pajamas has wished for 25 hours in a day. We give you more time – more time to meet each individual student’s needs, more time to grade assignments, more time to prepare for meetings with parents. How? By doing some of your lesson planning and grading for you.
Eight ways we can help
1. Learning materials.
We have you covered. Our website is full of videos and presentations that teach math and social studies. Educational resources include customizable PPT files and PDFs , educational movies, clipart, standards-aligned pre- and post-tests, curated links to additional resources across the Web and more. All resources are free to use and aligned with the concepts taught in our games. You can download these to teach multiplication, division, fractions or statistics whether you use our games or not. (Why wouldn’t you use our games? They’re awesome! Some are even free!)
Select your subject in the menu above to get started!
2. Automated scoring of student responses.
Students are immediately told if their answer is correct or incorrect.
3. Student scores.
If you license our games, you can pull up any student’s record including whether they answered a problem right or wrong, whether they read the hint and what answer they gave.
4. Individual instruction.
All of our games accommodate to student choices. Wrong answers lead to instruction, not just more questions. Players can choose to watch a video, read a web page or do an activity to learn more.
5. Motivating students.
With story lines by an award-winning author, high-resolution graphics and engaging game play, your students will ask you if they can stay in class and play. (Really! We’ve seen it!)
Each problem, each activity is aligned with a state standard. Need to cover teaching, “A fraction is a/b when a whole is divided into b equal parts?” Watch this video on how Native American children kept time by the sun or just check out our pages of links to everything from games to slides to teach fractions, starting here. Each resource page has standards identified.
7. Track progress.
We have pre- and post-tests your students can take both as practice for online standardized tests and to track their own progress. You can check online results for individual students or your whole class.
8. Our ten-minute lesson plans
Ever had just a little too much time left at the end of a lesson? Had one of those days when your class is just not getting the points and you need to mix things up? Want a quick review for your class? We have you covered.
