Tetris / BlockOut to boost mathematical skills?


It is said that Tetris and 3d Tetris can be good for mathematical skills.
Anybody here letting kids / students play Tetris or BlockOut as a way to try to boost mathematical skills?

This is such a great question! I haven’t used Tetris before but I wonder if others have. Have you tested this in your own classroom yet?

Well …
Some times kids just dont want to do anything.
So I tell them that I accept them to play BlockOut or BlockOut2 .
Because I have read that it is good for spatial ability and then boost geometry and mathematics.

Hi,

I have a unit on “collision detection” using Processing (Java). I will hopefully upload this to our curriculum hub very soon!

Warm wishes,
