Tabula Digita Introduces New DimensionM Multiplayer 2.0 Educational Video Games for Math Skills

Tabula Digita has announced DimensionM Multiplayer 2.0 educational video games for math.  Set to be released this quarter, the new DimensionM Multiplayer 2.0 features expanded curriculum content with more than 200 math skills presented via immersive, action-packed simulations for students in grades 3-12. According to a study conducted by the University of Central Florida last year, immersive educational video games can improve students’ mathematics understanding and skills, and significantly raise scores on district-wide math benchmark exams.

 

Like its predecessor, Multiplayer 2.0 offers three distinct missions. In each game, students face numerous mathematical obstacles that require knowledge of content and swift reaction to successfully navigate through a series of mazes to score the most points.  As they compete, each student builds upon basic skills like multiplication, division, and fractions, which in later years will lead to mastery of everything from proportions, number lines, and adding and subtracting integers, to order of operations, evaluating expressions, employing function tables, and solving complex equations.

 

The new Multiplayer 2.0 gives students the ability to create their own avatar.  It will include "in game" reports that reflect a summary along with information about students’ performance and mastery of concepts.   Students' and teachers' access to the various reports, will allow for better communication, collaboration and goal setting.

 

The new video game series is available on both Windows and Macintosh platforms, with all lessons or missions correlated to National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) and a variety of state standards. There are several purchase options available for schools and districts to consider when purchasing the new DimensionM games. For more information visit www.dimensionm.com.
