According to Tomas Durkin (Children’s Creativity Museum in San Francisco), “Most students are unaware of how much math is involved in the games that they love to play. Random numbers make a game more unpredictable and challenging. Geometry is needed to make characters move around the screen in different directions. Basic Algebra is used to keep score. Although they might not be consciously aware of it, by teaching students how make games, we are also reinforcing mathematics concepts that they are learning back at school. For students who want to add jumping to their games, we can even teach them physics concepts like density, friction, and gravity!”
