Over the next several months, students from New York, Texas, and Florida will put their math skills to the test in “live” educational video game tournaments.
Hosted by Tabula Digita in conjunction with Dell and Intel, large-scale tournaments will be held in Austin, Texas on April 14 and in Broward County, Fla. on May 21. New York City will host its third annual tournament on March 12 at Columbia University.
Using missions offered in the DimensionM Multiplayer series, the students will tackle numerous mathematical obstacles that require knowledge of content and swift reaction to score the most points. Topics include everything from prime numbers to graphing linear equations and more. Prizes include a FLIP HD Camcorder, a Fujifilm FinePix Z30 Digital Camera and $50 Target gift cards. Teachers will also be acknowledged for their contribution in the classroom with Amazon gift certificates.
