    My first time hearing of it. What is the overall goal of it, education-wise?

    From their site:

    https://education.minecraft.net/clas...math-economics

    Theres their sample math games.

    It looks like they have guides set up that you can learn and tour through, like the hydroelectric dam they built in one of their samples. And games you can play that ostensibly teach a subject...

    Ive been mixing our "Earth Sciences" with Minecraft - comparisons between the two and whatnot. (Its also our work on "Reading Comprehension" and "expository writing".
    We are also doing "social studies" by building medieval structures in Minecraft.

    Do you play Minecraft? If you play, it may be easier to find ways to incorporate math. Our whole family gets on a world sometimes - I ususlly am building house and gardens, DH is mining or building an elaborate redstone device, and the boys are hunting zombies or building something else.
