Mission 1: The Golf of Mexico
In this Mission...
Dr. Eugene Wick I.D. and his associate Platypus have decided to turn the Gulf of Mexico into a golf course. As a double agent working for the AntiVillainy Unit (AVU), the student's job is to foil Dr. Wick's plans by following AVU orders to make his scheme as expensive and problematic as possible. The Mission consists of 4 animation scenes, 4 math activities, and one of 3 possible endings.
Math topics explored in this Mission:
 Addition
 Composite Figures
 Multiplication
 Problem Solving
 Area calculation
 Algebraic Expressions
 Division
 Numeric Patterns
 Subtraction
 Geometric Figures
