The main idea behind this game is that students are on the same team. They are working together to beat Math Monster to the treasure. Students take turns spinning solving and moving all of the Voyager ships to get them all to the treasure before Math Monster.
1: Spin the spinner, move that many spaces. Land on Math Monster? He moves 2 spaces!
2: Take a card, solve its problem.
3: Check answer in the answer bank (no cheating!).
4: Check KEY for the symbol you landed on and move again! (this time move only if problem was solved correctly).
5: Take turns spinning and moving all Voyagers. Leave no Voyager behind!
6: Be sure to pick up the MAP by landing on it and correctly solving a problem.
Strategize well so that all Voyagers get to the treasure before Math Monster!
