In Zoombinis Mountain Rescue the Zoombinis find themselves trapped in a hazardous tunnel where mysterious creatures lurk. (In case you didn't know, Zoombinis are round little characters that sport different characteristics or attributes- hair, eyes, color, shoes, glasses, etc. In their travels, they need to be sorted, matched, mapped, and otherwise very closely examined by students based on their attributes to help them solve a quest. )
The Zoombinis' escape rests squarely on your shoulders, or more accurately, on your brain. With nine perplexing puzzles and three levels of difficulty, each perilous challenge will test your mathematical thinking skills-which include organizing information, reasoning with evidence, and testing systematically. Develop the information-age logic skills used in writing computer programs, organizing data, working with spreadsheets, and more.
The School Version includes teacher resource materials and two copies of the hybrid CD.
