Students at an England secondary school are using the Manga High software program to improve their maths skills by playing computer games. "When the pupils are using it, you can hear a pin drop in the classroom, as they are all concentrating so hard," one educator said. "In the classes we've trialled the software, the teachers haven't had to do anything; children just become completely engrossed in the game. The teachers were very impressed, as while the games are fun, they really do help teach the curriculum."
