Lure of the Labyrinth: Employee Cafeteria

In this interactive game, students use their knowledge of multiplication, division, factors, ratios, and proportions in order to determine the correct amounts of each food to be fed to the monsters. The game allows players to play at the beginning level which provides twenty-four tries to fill in twenty portions of food, with four portions given to start. The monsters give hints if an incorrect portion is given. Students may play additional levels of this game at the Lure of the Labyrinth site to which users are directed at the end of the round.

    • This level of the game is free but with free registration you can complete more difficult levels of the game. This is a great activity to complete with students when they finish an activity early or to introduce ratios and proportions!
