What Is "Math Missions"?

"Math Missions" is a computer game from Scholastic that allows kids to practice and improve their math skills by completing plot-based math activities. It is designed for kids in kindergarten to fifth grade.

In the "Math Missions" game, kids solve math problems in a fictional cartoon city, Spectacle City, which reflect real-world situations. For instance, they ride a bus and must pay their fare by using a specific amount of coins or slice up pies to fill pie orders and determine which fraction is greater than the other. Kids earn money for each task they successfully complete and then use that money to open the arcade and play arcade games. They can also become owners of the arcade and experience running a virtual business.
