Pick-a-Path

Pick-a-Path is a math game that really focuses on analyzing and evaluating math problems. To play, students get to choose their level, and the levels get harder each time they go up. I'm going to go ahead and start with puzzle one under level one. What the goal of the game, is to have the octopus get from one side of the grid to the other side of the grid with the highest possible value. So right away I can choose either multiply times 3, multiply times 6, or multiply times 9. Most students, knowing that the goal is to get the biggest number, will say, okay, we'll let's go ahead and multiply times 9. So they'll touch the seashell that's just past the multiply times 9 circle.

Well, we now have a couple options. I can either divide by 2, or divide by 3. If I divide by 3, it'll automatically finish the run, and take me to the bottom. But I can also see that if I can get to the middle, there's another multiply times 2 before I can get to the bottom. So at this point, a student c...
