Advancing Oregon Mathematics

Tabula Digita, creator of the New York City Department of Education Summer 2007 Multiplayer Educational Game (MEG) Tournament, is introducing a special project concept to Oregon Education involving the application of 3D, immersive educational videogames in what would be the first statewide mathematics competition (on Pre-Algebra and Algebra) of its type.

The First Annual Oregon State Multiplayer Educational Game (MEG) Tournament would place individuals and school teams, statewide, in collaborative and competitive 3D videogame worlds that will challenge their math fluency, decision making, strategic ability, and teamwork skills. The tournament will culminate in a finals competition pitting the best school teams and best individuals against one another in an event that will inspire students statewide to embrace mathematics in a new and enthusiastic way.

The Games are aligned to education standards (see attachment). This concept will be open for discussion to Oregon educators in the coming months.
