Mission Magnetite - An Online Percentage Game

By: pbskids.org
Uh oh, a villain is trying to launch a rocket full of magnetite at the city of Motherboard Central – and only you can stop him.

The villain – called Hacker – is filling the rocket with the deadly fluid, but if you can use your math skills to work out the combination to the rocket’s vents, you can flush his plan down the drain!

The combination involves matching a percentage, a fraction and a picture representing the same amount. You’ll have to match a number of those before the combination is unlocked, and all the while, the rocket is getting closer to full. When it fills up, whoooosh, away it goes!

Targeted at kids in fifth and sixth grade, this game is all about being able to recognise different ways of representing the same amount.

Can you stop Hacker’s attack plan in its tracks?
