Teachers and students have really enjoyed participating in the maths challenges explored so far. Some students have jumped right in and are fiercely competing for the leader board, frequently asking for more challenges!!!

Mangahigh roused a blazing interest in maths particularly amongst our boys in years 8 and 9. The competitive nature of the games and the dynamic leader-board keeps students on their toes, excited to be in the top 5 of each Prodigi challenge or game within the school. Even our year 11s and 12s enjoyed taking a break from the traditional forms of learning and played Mangahigh at home.
The interactive nature of the lessons, adaptive learning methodology, [...]

My students and I found Mangahigh to be a very engaging maths website. It provided a fantastic opportunity for the students to show prior knowledge of maths concepts, learn new maths concepts and be challenged to extend their understanding of maths concepts while having fun at the same time.
