Greg Linden writes, on G+, "Love the work these guys at UW CS are doing, 'games that discover optimal learning pathways for STEM education.' If you've got kids, check out their first game, Refraction. It teaches multiplying fractions without kids drilling on multiplying fractions, almost like education is a side effect of game play. Love it." So do I - and I spent far too much time playing it this afternoon. Oh, I am way too easily distracted. But you know, something like this gets me thinking of math function games, and electricity power grid games with sine waves and the rest of it.
