Using games to teach Maths to Biologists

a game being prototyped
At the end of last week, I ran a workshop in Sheffield (in the Diamond building at Sheffield Uni). This one was for a group of people who all taught maths to HE students in the biosciences.

Most of them seemed to be having similar problems, dealing with students who could massively vary in terms of maths knowledge and ability, some of whom don't want to be doing maths at all.

Hopefully, some of the games will help them address these issues... and more importantly, the process should help them create more polished games for the students in future!


  1. Even I have read that RPG games help to improve our mind stability, encourages, teamwork and cooperation. In fact games are not a waste of time, parents should allow their children to play more game and give equal importance as studies.
    BTW this blog is really absolutely fantastic!

    Thanks for sharing such articles. :D

  2. Great post, and great website. Thanks for the information!
