Re: Your next Mission Math assignment
Following new developments in the case that began with Sabotage at the Space Station, the SMART Agency requires your immediate assistance on an archaeological dig. Artifacts are disappearing, scaffolding is collapsing, our agents are in turmoil, and everyone is in Peril…at the Pyramids!
SMART needs your math expertise to get to the bottom of this dire situation. Please activate your iPad and report to the dig site as soon as possible. Upon your arrival, you will meet with the agents and scientists stationed there, explore the pyramid, and use your knowledge of arithmetic, order of operations, prime and composite numbers, perimeter and area, geometry, basic statistics and probability, long division, spatial rotation, and more to solve the mystery. We’ve got problems to solve – let’s go!
