The Radix Endeavor (radixendeavor.org) is an online multiplayer game designed to improve knowledge and engagement in high school math and science students. In a robust virtual world, players explain and solve problems by completing narrative driven quests to progress through the world. As they take on the roles of scientists and mathematicians in authentic situations, they develop inquiry, problem solving and critical thinking skills. Through a dashboard, the game allows teachers to monitor student progress as well as access resources that connect the gameplay to classroom instruction. Radix began a research pilot in February 2014 that continues through the end of the school year.
