Engaging Your Class in Mathematics with Numericon
Numericon is a compelling, cinematic 26-episode science fiction adventure, filled with action packed, cliff-hanger sequences in which a highly diverse team of space mercenaries follows the instructions of their captain, the student, to solve increasingly complex standards-based math problems that will ultimately determine the fate of the universe. Each Numericon episode consists of four segments.
1. Welcome aboard, Captain. Your mission is to use your math skills to save the universe one adventure at a time. Solve the problem, save the day, continue the journey!
2. Oops! Made an error? Consider your answer carefully or you may take an unexpected detour! A humorous sequence gently suggests that you try again.
3. Need help? Check with the counselor. She'll offer hints and strategies to help you complete the mission.
4. Congratulations! You have helped your crew solve the problem. Continue your quest to save the universe, Captain!
