Great game to get students hooked on "outside-of-the-box" geometry thinking!

My Take
Students who've struggled with geometry concepts in the past have become "hooked" when using this game. Some don't realize they are working with geometry concepts until they have to explain what they learned from the game. Students who need an additional challenge really love working through the frustrating levels. In fact, a few of my "Gifted and Talented" students have created a small competition among themselves.
