Mission Prime is an instructional video game developed at the University of Oklahoma K20 Center in conjunction with Dr. Kornelson from the mathematics department and with funding from the provost's office. Mission Prime focuses on developing students' conceptual understanding in the topic of optimization. In an experiment involving 132 students, we were able to show that Mission Prime is more effective than traditional homework at fostering conceptual understanding of the topic and also increases student engagement far above traditional methods. This presentation should help to demonstrate to audience members that digital game-based leaning applications are a viable option for the university classroom. After the presentation, audience members will be able to demo the game for themselves.
