The Pedagogy of Carmen Sandiego

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and The Learning Company are proud to present Carmen Sandiego Adventures in Math, an educational game for Nintendo's Wii™ system. Set in the world of Carmen Sandiego, players have to solve math puzzles in order to find the clues and capture the bad guys.

Designed for a range of elementary learners across grades 3–5, Carmen Sandiego Adventures in Math allows players to use the interactive features of the Wii to engage with math content in new and exciting ways. They'll graph with motion, sort coins with the flick of the wrist, and rearrange number sequences in mid-air! And because the content is specifically aligned to the Common Core Standards for grades 4 and 5, they'll be learning and applying crucial math skills they need while having fun doing it.

Some of the math topics covered include:

    * Symmetry
    * Identifying angles
    * Graphing coordinates on a grid
    * Logic puzzles
    * Working with fractions
    * Solving equations
    * Tangrams
    * And many more!

Carmen Sandiego Adventures in Math has something for learners of all skill levels! Plus, with five different downloadable capers and special practice modes, students will have hours of educational gameplay ahead of them!

More information will be added as each chapter of the game is released, so come back often to learn about the specific skills covered in each level as well as to find suggestions on how to incorporate the games into your student's instructional time.

Carmen Sandiego Adventures in Math is coming soon to a Wii near you.
