KS3 Perimeter, area, surface area, volume-Space exploration-adventure game

(8)
KS3 adventure game in which students answer perimeter, area, surface area, and volume questions in order to explore space. PLEASE REVIEW / COMMENT. Choose to explore Triangulum, which has easier questions on area of a parallelogram and a triangle, perimeter and area of a composite shape made from rectangles, surface area and volume of a cuboid. Then when completed, choose to explore Andromeda, which has more difficult problems involving perimeter of a rectangle and area of a triangle, area of a trapezium, surface area and volume of prisms. At the end there is an analysis of the understanding of the topics. Go to my profile page and check out my other games.
