In this lesson, students will play a Multiplication Escape game and solve multiplication problems to move the goblin Actor across the Stage. Next, students will follow a step-by-step tutorial in the DIY (do-it-yourself) module to create their own version of the Multiplication Escape game they just played. They will program the logic for the questions, create their own math questions, and code the goblin Actor to move when the answers are correct. If students want to make the game experience more challenging, encourage them to increase the speed of the falling bolder Actors. Or if students want to ask harder math questions, tell them to include division, subtraction, and fraction problems. After completing the DIY module, students will be asked 5 quiz questions involving multiplication problems. By the end of the lesson, students will have experimented with coding concepts (e.g., input/output, basic math, conditionals, loops, motion) while reinforcing multiplication skills.
