There are several ways to help kids advance in math, but in our experience, the best one is to think outside the textbook. Math Expanse is an online game-based course that does exactly that: it encourages kids to learn mathematical concepts by solving cool math problems in a game-based environment.
Math Expanse covers 30 math topics going beyond the scope of a standard middle school curriculum. Players work on math problems on their own and in teams to get game points and complete game quests. Once a month they meet with expert math instructors in live online classes to go over the solutions and learn more about the topics they have encountered in the game.
Twice a week Math Expanse players receive a set of math problems – over 250 of them in course of 8 months – that cover over 30 math topics ranging from parity to combinatorics.
