Hi Teacher! Did you hear about Dodo Does Math?
Teacher
Hi Gordo, not yet – what is it?
Gordo
Dodo Does Math helps elementary students practice math. The really cool part about Dodo Does Math is that it also reinforces coding at the same time. In the game, students need to help a dodo catch her lost eggs using math and code. Dodo Does Math does not teach or introduce any new topics, it simply helps students gain a better grip on their math and coding skills in a fun and gamified way.
