The Ultimate Math Puzzle Adventure
Strengthen Word Problem Solving Skills
Using this “Math Can Be Fun” Adventure Story!


Secrets of the Wizard is a fantasy adventure for anyone (age 12 and up) who loves solving math puzzles. It tells the story of the good wizard, Galimedes, and his two faithful helpers as they try to recover the lost scrolls of time and seasons that were stolen by the evil magician, Zarvildar. The story is packed full of action and suspense.

The pages of the story are scrambled and renumbered (so only the worthy will gain access to the secrets). Indeed, only by solving the math puzzle on each page will you know the number of the page to read next. There are 99 math puzzles altogether!

There is also a hidden secret message which you can spell out by stringing together the first letters on each of the pages when they are read in the correct order. This message will reveal the wizard’s greatest secret.

Create a Math Squad Math Journal
This is a teacher's guide which explains how to implement a journal project in a math classroom. This guide explains how the journal can include 4 kinds of pages: lecture notes, illustrations (charts, diagrams, graphs, etc), research topics, and pages where students pick the math-related subject. There is a page-by-page listing of the contents of my algebra journal as an example plus copies of 70 actual pages of illustrations and supplemental material that I use. Please note: The many of these supplemental pages are about a Biblical subjects such as information about Noah's ark, King Solomon's Pool, the Ark of the Covenant, the tower of Babel, and the Six Days of Creation. There are also pages about Fibonacci, Kepler, and Descartes and other interesting math topics.

"Math Treasure Island"

The map of Math Treasure Island is a project that adds excitement to math class while tracking the progress made. My 6th grade General Math students really enjoy this project.

I have created a booklet that explains the complete Math Treasure Island project. It is complete with all the information teachers need to create their own math adventure. Students will practice using a compass, straight-edge, and protractor; measuring in inches and metric; using proportional scale; and finding places on the map using the coordinate plane.

The Math Adventure Game
"Quest for the Golden Calculator"

“The Quest for the Golden Calculator” is an interactive game that’s designed to make math class fun. The fictional story and cast of characters provide the teacher with a host of opportunities to help students become successful in math, develop good work habits, set goals, maintain a positive attitude, persevere through difficulties, and avoid typical problem areas such as: being disorganized and wasting time. It teaches students the value in avoiding bad influences, distractions, boredom, taking shortcuts, and making excuses.

This unique adventure story/game features a large classroom map where students keep track of their progress. The game enables the teacher to incorporate motivational material into virtually any math curriculum. The fictional story includes 25 episodes which help students understand how to avoid such hazards as the Lazy Old Goof-off Snake, Distraction Lake, Bad Influence Quick Sand, Getting Bored Swamp, and the Negative Attitude Shark.
