At ISTE 2011, a web-based multiplayer online math social learning game was unveiled to thousands of educators from around the country. Developed by Sokikom, this new online environment is designed to help students in grades 1-6 build skills while developing a love for learning math. An entire classroom of more than 30 kids can play the game together at any time. Students can also play individually.

Sokikom currently features three games: Frachine, which focuses on fractions, decimals and percents; Opirate, which emphasizes mathematic operations and algebra; and Treeching, which concentrates on the principles of measurement, algebra, patterns, time and money. A fourth game focusing on geometry will be released in late summer 2011.
