Buffalo Public Schools (NY) recently selected DimensionM™ education video games to supplement their math curriculum for 12,000 students in 45 schools. The district will begin using the games during the upcoming summer school session and continue in the fall.

Tabula Digita, a developer of standards-based educational video games for K-12 schools, created DimensionM Multiplayer games to teach and reinforce key math concepts for grades 3-12. The games involve first-person action adventure missions and use similar graphics, sound and animation as those in popular video games. The games help students use the concepts they learn in class in a fun and engaging format.
