Ask Viraz

Earlier this summer we announced a new resource for getting started with Radix - Ask Viraz! Viraz is student in the Boston area who got into playing Radix through his school. He has been writing some tip sheets for other students who are new to the game to help them get going, and he'll continue to post new tips throughout this semester. Point your students toward his column in the forums to check out the tips, and encourage them to share their own tips as well!

Data Detective

Investigate Antiokos's most recent claims about grabbleshells, blackburns, and other species from around Ysola. Find out how his sweeping generalizations might negatively affect the people of the island and help them determine whether the studies are accurate or not. Using concepts like mean, median, mode, and sample size, collect data and analyze it to prove who is lying with data and what should be done about it.

Math Content in Radix

We frequently field questions and concerns over the math content in the game. Radix currently has six quest lines for math - two for algebra, three for geometry, and one for statistics. While the biology content in the game is primarily applicable to high school, the math is more flexible. During our pilot this spring, we found that the math content works well in a variety of settings. The topics work very well for middle school, particularly the algebra quest lines.

5,000 Account Milestone!

The Radix Team is proud to announce that in the past week we have reached the milestone of 5,000 Radix accounts created! This includes teacher accounts, student accounts, and player (outside of school) accounts. We have reached this milestone in only the first three months of the pilot release so we are really excited to see this many people showing an interest in Radix. In addition, while we're thrilled that so many people are hearing about Radix and checking out the game, we're planning to focus our efforts during the pilot phase on taking those users further.
