  1. 1. How Adaptive Games Confront Math Teaching Challenges By: Adapted Mind Math
  2. 2. How Adaptive Games Confront Math Teaching Challenges By presenting a game-based platform that places an emphasis on users having fun as they learn, Adapted Mind Math offers a learning experience that spans the entirety of K-6 math. In providing a game that adapts to the specific needs of individuals, Adapted Mind Math has been able to develop a method of delivering education in a dynamic and engaging fashion that confronts many of the challenges that are associated with teaching mathematics today. Such challenges include the following.
  3. 3. How Adaptive Games Confront Math Teaching Challenges 1. Demonstrating the relevance of mathematics in real-world scenarios, a challenge that is exacerbated whenever people in professions that don’t use math talk about how they never need algebra and other mathematical techniques to succeed. By creating a negative perception around the subject, such individuals encourage disengagement unless students are presented with math’s practical uses. Educational games can be used to present such situations to students and encourage them to engage in them, demonstrating the practical applications of math while offering a sense of achievement upon solving a problem.
  4. 4. How Adaptive Games Confront Math Teaching Challenges 2. Addressing the needs of individuals can be difficult in a classroom environment. Each student has unique learning requirements, and it is a challenge to provide as flexible an educational experience as possible in the limited amount of time that teachers have with groups of children in the classroom. Adaptive gaming platforms can tailor themselves to the specific needs of students by employing algorithms that are capable of assessing progress and filling the individual player’s learning gaps.
