MBGoTW-ZapperWhere do the top Cadets of the ISP get their training for Red Alert Missions? At the Zapper simulator in the Math Academy! This special game allows you to experience what it is like in sitting in the cockpit during a Red Alert Mission and using your math skills to help destroy incoming asteroids that could potentially harm our ship! If you want to become as sharp as Max and GC are when they fly through the galaxy, then we highly recommend getting started on this Game of the Week mission!

Track Your Progress in Monty’s “Back to the Academy” Challenge

“Hi Blasters, Monty reporting live from the Spaceport! I have had a really great idea for an exciting activity that I could not wait to share with you all! I understand that starting off a new school year can be really stressful, so I wanted to make sure you were all settled into your new classes before I got started on this challenge!
MB-Blog-BackToSchoolEvery year, I am always amazed how much you Blasters improve and excel in your Math Academy games. That is why I thought it might be fun for us to track how much we improved in some of our favorite games over the school year! As you have noticed with our Games of the Week, the Math Academy has games covering a wide variety of topics from geometry to arithmetic.

To help us all improve our math skills, I would like it if each one of you selected THREE games focusing on a different math topic and then monitored your improvement over the school year! That way, we can be at are sharpest when we defend the galaxy from some of our evil nemeses. Also, you will really be able to see just how far a bit of practice and studying can go in improving your skills as a top-notch Cadet.

Are you ready to join me in this challenge? Play some of our Math Academy games, then share with your friends which games you plan to focus on during this school year!”

Game of the Week: Risk-It

MBGoTW-RiskIt2With a summer’s worth of Math Academy practice under your belt, it is time to put your new math skills to the test! Where else can you show off your mathematical genius better than in Risk-It? In this game, you can use your knowledge to answer questions about various math topics and earn BIG rewards! However, there is one catch. If you happen to get a question incorrect and you risk too many Credits, all of your new points will be lost! That just means you have to be extra confident with each answer you give. So do you think you are up for the challenge? Head in to Risk-It and play the measurement category for this week’s Blaster Mission!

Game of the Week: Rollerball Rally

MBGoTW-RollerballRallyOnce again, Spaceport is in need of some extra energy to keep our games powered up. You can help out Max with this important Spaceport mission by heading to Rollerball Rally at Fitness Training. In this game, you will be transported off to Planet Blizzard and collect the energy sources that our ship requires to fly through the galaxy.

Now that you have completed levels 1-4, try challenging yourself to collect even more energy sources in levels 5-8 in our Game of the Week. For your hard work, you can receive Credits to buy items in your Pod AND gain extra points to help you rise through the I.S.P.’s ranks!

Game of the Week: B-Force Blaster

MBGoTW-BForceBlasterSpaceport is always on high alert for potential intruders, which is why we have such a skilled group of Blasters in the I.S.P. One of the best ways to prepare for our sudden Red Alerts is by going out into the training field in B-Force Blaster. While cruising through this course, you will have to keep a sharp eye out for targets displaying some of the infamous Spaceport villains, as well as any colored targets you might find. Special tip: shoot any moving rocks for an extra 300 points each!

Are you feeling ready to take to training on the Red Planet? Head into B-Force Blaster at the Math Academy and start on our Blaster Mission! Once you have completed it, share with us your best score!

Game of the Week: Angle Attack

MB-AngleAttack2We are not quite sure why the most mischievous of Aliens enjoy sneaking into our ship, but our team at Spaceport needs some help warding them off! Head to the Math Academy and take on GC’s Mission in our Game of the Week by using your sharp geometry tactics to precisely blast away these outer space pranksters.
