Are you worried that your child spends too much time playing video games? That they’re always glued to their device which is causing them to fall behind at school? It’s not your fault, games are designed to be exciting after all. But what if there was a way to improve your child’s maths grades using video games they already play? ClassBridges have discovered the secret formula and more importantly, is willing to share it.
ClassBridges is a project helping parents understand the video games their kids are playing whilst improving the maths skills of children by creating maths resources based on the games they already know and love such as Minecraft, Roblox, Fortnite, FIFA, and others, meaning children are much more likely to be interested in practising maths.
Mums who have used ClassBridges practice sheets – for as little as 15 minutes a day – have seen noticeable results and find that their children are much more engaged in their learning.
Here’s just one mum’s feedback…
“I had them printed off and they were left on the side in the kitchen…. She immediately recognised the Minecraft theme and that piqued her interest straight away. I explained what they were, and she was a bit hesitant but still was eager to look through and try the questions. With her normal maths homework, it’s a real struggle so this was a massive positive. So, I would say she engaged more with the learning because the context was related to Minecraft.
She has really improved with her maths over the last few months but still found some of the questions tough…. She enjoyed the sequence questions and the colouring in on the multiplication square. I feel that the game context helped her see the problems clearer and in turn, she was more engaged and willing to sit and practice/work out the solutions.
I would say overall they have helped her ability in her weaker areas, like times tables/multiplication. I think relating maths to something she’s interested in was a great turning point and helped her see numbers as a daily life tool rather than an annoying subject at school. It boosted her confidence and I hope that’s something she can take forward into the future.”
