At Winton Woods High School in Forest Park, Ohio, ninth- and 10th-graders who need additional help in math can enroll in "math lab" as an elective. The program, which uses Khan Academy resources, has proven especially popular among students because it uses a gaming format. "Just like in a video game, if you step off the path, you have to go back to the beginning," said intervention specialist Amy Uecker. "And because they're used to video games, the students don't get frustrated."
