Each book in the Maths Adventure Games series draws on the creative and interactive features of adventure games, and applies them to a series of exciting and imaginative learning exercises, based on a common theme or challenge.
Children have to undertake a number of maths tasks to complete the games. The fun challenges are easy, straightforward and ideal for children at KS2 who find maths difficult. The tasks represent good practice as encouraged by Non-statutory Guidance, HMI, OFSTED inspectors.
Completing the adventures takes a total of perhaps three hours, but many additional ideas are included for follow-up work. Suggestions are also included for using the adventures as staff development exercises for teachers and assistants.
