A 'teacher' has to sign up for a group of at least 4 students. Homeschoolers may want to join together to sign up.
The Education Arcade at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has announced the Lure of the Labyrinth Challenge, 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.
There is no cost involved to participate in the challenge, which runs through June 15. Since the game is web-based, students can play at home or at school, in the classroom, computer lab, library, or after-school program.
