*** SUMMARY ***
You are a pirate and your mission is to collect treasures from cities around the world. The King’s Fleet is trying to stop you but they’re no match for your wits! The world map is your playing field: you decide where you want to go and use math to get there. It’s time to stop drilling and start using math creatively.
Finland has ranked consistently at the top of the world in the PISA tests. One of the main reasons behind this success is the participatory methods Finnish teachers use. There is much truth behind the saying “Tell me and I forget, teach me and I remember, involve me and I learn”.
That’s why we have been working closely with the Finnish schools, teachers and pupils to make something special. We are proud to say that Math Ahoy! is the first math game that truly involves children to use math creatively – we are not looking for a preset answer over and over again. With Math Ahoy! you can add a little piece of Finland to your classroom and home. Enjoy.
