Helping students remember the order of operations has led to the term: PEMDAS. With the repeating use of the word, we aim to help students contextualize its meaning. With the combination of Minecraft mechanics with mathematical problems, we aim to present the students with a different way to approach a problem, since the traditional pen and paper might seem tedious. Tackling challenges in such a way seems less intimidating to student and therefore can rationalize their attitude towards mathematics in the classroom.

This game course integrates Game-Based Learning methods into the classroom.
