UW CSE Alegebra Challenge

UW's Computer Science and Engineering Department had kicked off a Washington State Algebra Challenge on April 21 with an end date of April 26th.  However, due to feedback from schools about state testing, they have extended the project. 

Our schools sent the message, and we got it loud and clear! April and May are busy times for testing, so why not give everyone more time to participate in the challenge? 

Today, we’re pleased to announce an extension to our end date – sign up and start the Challenge as early as April 27 (next week!), and go at your own pace until June 5, 2015, when we close up our leaderboards for the 2014-15 school year.

With our new date, we’ll be adjusting our goals and shaking things up a bit. With even more time, we can’t wait to see what the students of Washington state can accomplish together.

The Center for Game Science at the University of Washington focuses on solving hard problems facing humanity today in a game based environment. Our focus is on scientific discovery games, games that discover optimal learning pathways for STEM education, cognitive skill training games, games that promote human creativity, games that explore collective over individual intelligence, and many more.
