Math Science Quest is a fun way to learn the fundamental reasoning skills that are the essence of scientific method. It can be played as an individual puzzle or a multi-player game. Players explore a complex mathematical puzzle attempting to find all the solutions. Experiments can be designed to provide additional information about the resources and concepts used in the undiscovered solutions. Through this elegant and concentrated simulation of scientific method, players develop powerful analytical and intuitive abilities. Math Science Quest creates an integrated improvement in thinking, reasoning, and mathematical comprehension.
Learning basic skills in order to engage in an integrated, higher-order thinking activity is a lot more inspiring than endless drills on isolated skills. Further, the repeated practice of a series of individual skills does not necessarily lead to synthesis and integration any more than the separate exercise of the individual muscles involved in bicycle riding will teach you how to ride one. Resource Allocation Games like Math Science Quest allow rich, interactive, problem-solving environment.
Teachers, Parents, and kids from ages 8 up will benefit from Math Science Quest. Our studies indicated that the greatest increase in achievement occurs among students in classes previously identified as a falsely defined “low ability”.
