As a service to the community, the Rice University School Mathematics Project (RUSMP) is now hosting Web Adventures which was created by the Center for Technology in Teaching and Learning (CTTL). The mission of CTTL was to undertake research that makes technologies for learning more productive, accessible, and engaging, especially through the use of games in science and health education. Unfortunately, RUSMP will not be able to provide technical support for the site.
We want you to continue to enjoy exploring the games, and we hope to add additional games in the future.
