Lure of the Labyrinth is a digital game for middle-school pre-algebra students. It includes a wealth of intriguing math-based puzzles wrapped into an exciting narrative game in which students work to find their lost pet - and save the world from monsters! Linked to both Common Core and national (NCTM) standards, the game gives students a chance to actually think like mathematicians.
Many educators believe that game play is especially well suited to teach certain kinds of content and problem-solving skills. That said, we still think textbooks are great. We just think textbooks and games are better!
