Lure of the Labyrinth Math Challenge

The Education Arcade at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology
has announced the Lure of the Labyrinth
, a free online math challenge for grades 6-8.

While playing Lure of the Labyrinth, students use mathematical thinking skills to progress through a compelling graphic-novel story.  Students and educators have many chances to win prizes such as Lenovo ThinkPad Tablets, books, and
technology tools like subscriptions to BrainPop just for playing.

There is no cost involved to participate in the challenge, which runs through June 15, 2012.  Since the game is web-based, students can play at home or at school, in the classroom, computer lab, library, or after-school program. Teachers have the
option of integrating corresponding lessons into their classroom activities but it is not required. Students can play as little or as much as they want-and best of all, they will have continued access to the game over the summer to help avoid that inevitable “brain drain.”

Visit http://lureofthelabyrinth.net to sign-up for the Challenge!

To learn more, join the Lure of the Labyrinth Community on edWeb.net.
