I’m a math teacher, who’s been continually frustrated at how boring math education is for the average student. I would love to help create a game that made learning math integral to reaching the goals of the game.
There are a lot of games where math is integral. I expect the bigger challenge is finding a way to align whatever game to the curriculum requirements. I’ve always thought gambling games were very educational. At it’s simplest, just determining whether or not a particular die is fair can make an accessible, but interesting math question with a lot of depth. More generally, detecting cheaters makes for motivating problems. Or, in a similar vein, one could make a game of detecting abuses of mathematical/numerical information in popular media.
