Villainy, Inc.: Thwarting World Supremacy through Mathematics

Villainy, Inc. is a website devoted to helping upper elementary grade students build and use problem-solving skills to solve unique and complex mathematical problems. Students become undercover agents working to thwart the evil Dr. Wick, ID and his often-zany schemes to take over the world. Student activities include finding areas of rectangles, calculating with decimals and percents, finding averages, estimating and comparing whole numbers and decimals, all presented in the context of an animated and interactive cartoon story. Students complete one or both of the missions online. Teachers editions for each mission are provided, as well as additional tips, answer keys, printable worksheets and connections to standards. Note that it is not possible to save work online.

    • Students really love this resource. Be sure to have them keep a copy of answers so they can quickly get back to where they left off because you can't save. It's worth it!
