Teachers in many parts of the country are using video games such as "World of Warcraft" and "Angry Birds" to help teach students about math, language arts and other subjects. For example, Tim Chartier, an associate professor of math at Davidson College in North Carolina, once taught a teacher seminar explaining that "Angry Birds" uses a parabola for one of the birds' trajectory. This inspired Kristianna Luce, a math teacher at North Mecklenburg High School in Huntersville, N.C., to incorporate "Angry Birds" in her algebra classes and create a blog and webinar on the topic.
