Teams first create a team logo and design their own flag, before applying addition, subtraction, measurement, logic, and problem-solving skills to unravel puzzles. Successful teams earn Greek drachmas according to their level of problem solving and consistency of group effort. Along the way, they learn about ancient Greece’s gods, goddesses, and famous mathematicians. The teacher’s guide contains procedures, handout masters, and bonus puzzles, while student guides include a map, vocabulary, and information on Greek mathematicians, mythological figures, money, and alphabet. The full simulation runs for 12 class periods, though each has omittable bonus puzzles.
