Mangahigh is a very important part of our numeracy strategy. I organise two maths inter-form competitions every year using  Mangahigh games.

We also use Mangahigh as part of our online homework and in-class tasks.

G&T students are also set tasks as part of their weekly targets.

Bispham High School, Lancashire – Changing student attitudes to maths

Attitudes to Maths have historically been quite poor, but the competitive element, with the in-class rankings, and the way Prodigi adjusts the difficulty of questions have marked a noticeable change in students attitudes in just five weeks. Hopefully we can continue to capitalise on this in the new academic year and try and get a little higher in the leader boards.

We print and stick the students login details onto address labels that go onto the front of the students exercise [...]

Cheam Park Fram Junior School, Surrey – Teacher feedback

The children enjoyed all the games all were easy to use. Our SEN children were able to grasp what was being asked of them without guidance so they are appropriate for ‘whole class’ participation.

The games are similar to casual ones they have played before and they do not realise that they are learning (disguised learning as they feel as if they are competing against a computer)

The theme of Manga comics from Japan are very popular with my particular class at [...]

Michael Gove, Education secretary – Mangahigh ‘Excellent’

In Michael Gove’s recent speech to the Royal Society, he highlighted the potential of Mangahigh to engage students and help them learn.

“Computer games developed by Marcus Du Sautoy [Mangahigh] are enabling children to engage with complex mathematical problems that would hitherto have been thought too advanced. When children need to solve equations in order to get more ammo to shoot the aliens, it is amazing how quickly they can learn. I am sure that this field [...]

Harris Academy Merton, Surrey – Assorted student quotes

The Harris Academy Merton is using Mangahigh with a range of classes to help engage students and raise attainment levels. The students in a lower set year 11 group shared their thoughts on the experience. They have been preparing for their GCSE examinations and used Mangahigh in class and at home.

We asked the students “Were all the Mangahigh lessons worthwhile and why?”

“Yes because we didn’t only do it individually, we learnt together as a class.”   Ellison

“Yes because it allowed [...]
