Middle School Math – Mangahigh
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!
