Exciting card game teaches probability, addition, subtraction & more!

This is a wonderful site. I wish I had this resource when I was in school.

I wasn't sure where to post this, but this thought the forum might be interested in a new card game called Battlez, a game designed by a Stanford graduate whose goal is to teach complex math concepts in a fun manner to kids of all ages. The beta version of the game was released as the limited edition, and can be found on the website: [Cough]. The character artwork is very nice, and the game itself is so entertaining that kids will play it for hours and days, and learn complex math concepts without even realizing it. I would love to hear your thoughts about this highly educational game if you are a game player, and its usefulness as a teaching tool if you are an instructor.

And lo, did I see upon this section this thread and I did say; "Doeth thine eyes decieve thine, o'great purveryor of justice, or doeth thou seeth spam?"

And with awesome rebuke, I did smite it with my mighty hammer of truth, crossed with the fair scepter of trial and the swift rubke of retribution.


Boy let me tell you what:
I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player too.
And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you.

Re: Exciting card game teaches probability, addition, subtraction & more!

I'd leave it as an example to all who try to freely advertise on our boards. Then again, anyone who tries probably wouldn't look through previous topics. Oh well. In that case, I'd leave it because the topic has turned into an interesting conversation about how spamming is bad, instead of a topic about spam, meaning that it's not bad anymore. Or something.

Re: Exciting card game teaches probability, addition, subtraction & more!

Hi BrookDrew;

The shark rounding game was cool, so was the sequence games. I was a little disappointed with the Venn diagram maker. It didn't allow for filling in the intersecting areas or for really adding new circles. No save also is a negative feature


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.
