Middle School Math – Mangahigh

by Randy Ziegenfuss

Salisbury Middle School math teacher, Mr. Michael Posch is using the game-based learning site Mangahigh with students to supplement class instruction.

Mangahigh is a digital learning platform that builds student math skills through social engagement and competition. The site delivers math content through:

  • Math games – highly engaging math games for students to play.
  • Prodigi – adaptive quizzes where students earn medals based on their own math proficiency.

Students also participated in a Fai-To where they were challenged by a British school for the amount of medals earned over a 9 day period. The middle school students were highly engaged and motivated during the challenge. Needless to say, we were victorious!

Skeptical about he use of gaming in learning? Watch this TEDx talk by Gabe Zichermann on Gamification.
