In AzTech, as with all of our games, students can choose to learn by watching a video, reading a webpage, having a page read to them or doing an activity. The videos below address topics of special concern to schools using our games, either because these were prerequisite to learning statistics, or were math or social studies concepts with which students have particular difficulty. For Spanish-speaking students in your class, we have video voiceovers in Spanish. Feel free to use any of these videos to teach your children. To check out our games, click here.
