Here at my internship I have been assigned quite a few tasks to help out the 7 Generation Games team. One of my assignments has been to go through various educational sites and rate them for other 7 Generation Game employees. While I have come across some great sites, I get ecstatic when I find other math games. The gamification of education is a relatively emerging field in academia, and finding cool games – like our own Spirit Lake – is extremely rewarding. Check out these 5 games that I have found that incorporate math and fun!
Subject: Arithmetic Game Involving RPG aspects
Explore dungeons and defeat challenges to move onto greater, more comprehensive levels. Play as an alien who has to beat various monsters and overcome obstacles with math skills!
2. Tiger Stat

Collect data from tiger populations on your way to compiling statistical models.

5. Brain Chaser
Subject: Arithmetic Racing Game
