Red Hill Studios - Interactive Math Word Problems

The Higher Education Math Group at AW/Pearson and Red Hill Studios co-developed this simple yet powerful interactive math problem solving activity.

Students attempt to create mathematical representations of word problems by dragging scrabble-like tiles containing math terms into a central “working area.” The program provides several rounds of feedback for each problem. Red Hill designers and programmers created a dynamic, xml-based “problem engine” that streamlines the production of new interactive problems. More than 200 Interactive Math Word Problems have been produced using this engine (for a cost of less $100 per problem).
