Zachariah Chou

2011 U Games - 1st Place (Sr. Division)

National Scholarship Tournament

Broward County Library,

Fort Lauderdale, Florida

7th Grade

Where is he now?

Graduated: University of Florida

Major: Political Science & Journalism

Currently: Middle & High School Debate Coach

Playing DimensionU Games helped Zachariah improve his speed in solving problems and gain a spot on the math team at his school. He feels being strong numerically allows him to think quickly and speak in an educated manner, which can be very helpful when debating. Zachariah says, “Even though my work is typically seen as being part of the social sciences, there is no doubt the role that science and mathematics have when it comes to how numbers and statistics are used in the discourse on public policy. As an educator, I get to teach my students how to argue using statistics and also how to argue against them; what the numbers mean and what they don't in the context of weighty argumentative topics that impact everyday life."

As a 3rd grade student in Marion County Public Schools (FL), Elyse loved playing DimensionU Games so much that not only did she play them at school, but remembers literally spending hours playing them at home. She was driven by the challenge of trying to score higher on the leaderboards and didn’t really think about them as being educational. Her favorite game was Meltdown. Winning the trip to NYC to participate in DU the Math, was really exciting as a 3rd grader. During middle school is where Elyse discovered her interest in biology and started thinking about an eventual career as a radiologist. Currently, Elyse attends the University of Florida, majoring in Microbiology on a Pre-Med track with plans to go to Medical School. She is also a member of Gator Alliance for World Health on campus. Her advice to students, “Follow your passion and choose a field of study that aligns with that, so you can enjoy your passion throughout life!”
