DimensionU’s TowerStorm for Math & Literacy is a competition-oriented, real-time, multiplayer action game for Elementary, Middle and High School students. The app is free, and requires a valid DimensionU user account. Just install the app and sign-in with your existing username and password.
TowerStorm helps improve student proficiency on over 400 State & Common Core aligned Math and Literacy Skills in grades 2 – 10.
Embedded instructional help codes and game tutorials are readily accessible to assist players. Just tap the “?” for assistance- It’s like a built-in tutor!
Each player can customize their skill practice while still competing with others who may be playing on different skills, levels or subject areas.
Players earn points by correctly answering questions, and bonus-up when combining consistent accuracy with a healthy balance of good gaming skills. Points earned convert automatically into DimensionU Tokens (DUTs) that can be used to acquire Power-Ups for in-game use or new Avatar customizations.
Full review of all incorrectly answered questions is provided to students.
Classroom educators can use the Teachers by DimensionU app to set-up custom TowerStorm game rooms for their classes that allow for team-based games.
