Can playing Pokemon Go help with Math and Science Skills?


Through the use of the GPS (global positioning system), the game determines your position on earth with more extremely complicated mathematical principles. Mathematical principles are also used in buying characters and building a Pokemon Deck.

    Pokemon does get people outside, moving around. If the GPS does really acquire math, then the basic counting aspect is good. At least people will learn the basics and not get short changed.

    Interesting, it would be nice if it did help teach math or physics.
