Math Pursuits is a research project to develop a software prototype where students will embark on exciting adventures. Each adventure will help students achieve their goals in understanding mathematics through their quest to discover the mathematical connections to the world around them. Within each of these adventures, students will be challenged to solve meaningful problem scenarios, presented through realistic videos. These videos portray actual students discussing math problems that are then left to the software user to solve. The students must solve these video problems in order to decipher the clues in the adventure.
