Sponsored by a National Science Foundation grant, researchers at New Mexico State University are developing Math Snacks -- a series of short animations and games that help middle-school students better understand math. The programs are designed to be used as homework or to introduce new concepts, say researchers. "We're trying to address gaps in math learning," said the director of NMSU's Learning Games Lab. "Math is difficult for a lot of people. There's something about math that makes us feel stupid if we can't remember it."
