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.
We hope that during students' game and puzzle play, you'll be more of a 'guide on the side' than a 'sage on the stage.' That said, it is, of course, going to be up to you. You can start thinking about this topic here.
