Throughout the working world, mathematical expertise and well-refined research skills are in great demand. Zoolutions creates a fun and interesting way for grade-school students to use research skills and math to solve problems. Featuring animals like mice, tigers and polar bears, Zoolutions provokes children's natural curiosity for problem-solving. Students must locate information on a given animal, read and analyze this information critically, and determine the solution using math and reasoning. In this way, students feel more confident in their ability to use information and ideas, and enjoy using math. Based on the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Standards.
