In Scholastic's Dude's Dilemma activity, one of Maggie's Earth Adventures, students help rescue Maggie's dog, Dude, who is trapped on a rooftop! But first, they must answer a few math questions. They can choose addition, subtraction, multiplication, division or a mix of all four and pick a level (Easy, Hard, or Extreme). Each correct answer gets them closer to rescuing Dude.
Sample Addition Exercises: Easy Level
- 1 + 1 =
- 2 + 4 =
- 4 + 5 =
Sample Subtraction Exercises: Hard Level
- 12 – 1 =
- 19 – 7 =
- 10 – 3 =
Sample Multiplication Exercises: Extreme Level
- (1 x 1) x 7 =
- (3 x 2) x 8 =
- (5 x 6) x 9 =
- (1 x 4) x 4 =
Students can also play this game in Spanish.
While participating in the Dude's Dilemma activity, students become proficient with several of these skills.
- Use web technology to practice math skills
- Build math skills to higher levels
- Track progress on different skill sets
