Baggin’ the Dragon is a carefully constructed online learning math game created for students age 5 to 15 and beyond with unique learning abilities. It contains several levels that build on each other with unique coding that allows students to master the math questions as they save the planets from invaders.
When a student begins Baggin’ the Dragon, they have access to over 10,000 interactive math questions. Students can begin with basic knowledge, and then the game introduces students to new topics at the student’s pace.
Baggin’ the Dragon can be played in single-player mode, or students can play against other students or the inbuilt smart computer players.
