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.
Lure of the Labyrinth is not a tool for assessing your students' math performance. What it can do, though, is to provide data about your students that you can then incorporate into your classroom teaching. And that, we think, will help to improve your kids' math performance.
