ETS Math Games Challenge

For those interested in K-12 mathematics, here is something that might interest you. I found a LinkedIn post in my mailbox today and thought I would share the associated link. Math now, but challenges in other ETS subject areas will surely follow.

From: http://etsgameschallenge.com/?goback=%2Egde_2013888_member_133702414

ETS is looking for developers and educators to create a game that acts as a math assessment. We’re looking for innovative ideas that produce evidence of students’ knowledge, skills, and abilities in mathematics. The assessment tasks should be based on a Learning Progression for some field of mathematics in K-12. We are providing two research-based Learning Progressions: (1) Variables and Equality (approximately Grades 5-9) and (2) Linear Functions (approximately Grades 7-10). You are invited to use either of these or supply your own for any other K-12 mathematical content.

Let your creativity flow while potentially helping students everywhere to learn through fun activities. Find out more about this contest at the link above. Share the link with fellow educators. Or follow ETS in LinkedIn here:
