Riddle Books, created by the Center for Game Science at the University of Washington, aims to develop learners’ understanding of Common Core concepts and support the Math in Focus (Modeling Based Math) curriculum. By using story problems to gradually introduce the player to the notion of equations, Riddle Books starts off with the player manipulating pictures and dealing with relationships they can intuitively understand and enables students to solve story problems regardless of their skill level. Meet the problem types here!

This year, the challenge will also feature an innovative, free Teacher Control Panel called Copilot that allows teachers to view real-time student gameplay data and helps them remove key misconceptions at the group and individual level.
