Track Your Progress in Monty’s “Back to the Academy” Challenge

“Hi Blasters, Monty reporting live from the Spaceport! I have had a really great idea for an exciting activity that I could not wait to share with you all! I understand that starting off a new school year can be really stressful, so I wanted to make sure you were all settled into your new classes before I got started on this challenge!
MB-Blog-BackToSchoolEvery year, I am always amazed how much you Blasters improve and excel in your Math Academy games. That is why I thought it might be fun for us to track how much we improved in some of our favorite games over the school year! As you have noticed with our Games of the Week, the Math Academy has games covering a wide variety of topics from geometry to arithmetic.

To help us all improve our math skills, I would like it if each one of you selected THREE games focusing on a different math topic and then monitored your improvement over the school year! That way, we can be at are sharpest when we defend the galaxy from some of our evil nemeses. Also, you will really be able to see just how far a bit of practice and studying can go in improving your skills as a top-notch Cadet.

Are you ready to join me in this challenge? Play some of our Math Academy games, then share with your friends which games you plan to focus on during this school year!”
