    Do You Have What It Takes to Save the World's Oceans?

    Toxicity levels are rising. Hazardous undersea mazes must be navigated. And dangerous sea creatures lie in wait. It's a top-secret search-and-rescue mission for the remains of an unmanned space capsule and its vital data canisters that crashed into the sea - a mission that only you and the high-tech mini-sub Neptune can handle.

    Calculate your position relative to the surface ship. Compute your food and water supply. And determine when the next volcanic eruption will occur. These are just some of the challenging math calculations you'll face. The powerful onboard computer and calculator will help, but it's your own mental math strength and stamina that will be tested.

    Special Features

  • Endless hours of undersea adventure. Colorful graphics, digitized music, and special sound effects bring this undersea adventure to life like never before. Start at the Voyager level; then advance to Expert where the action and marine hazards increase.


  • Practice your math. You can customize the content of math problems to focus on specific math skills. Also, a new Math Practice feature allows players to work on specific types of math problems without playing the game.


  • You've got two chances. Miscalculate, and the sub's computer displays a strategy hint onscreen; miss again, and a step-by-step solution appears.


  • Time out. There's no penalty for taking your time to solve math word problems.


  • Educational Benefits:

  • Get ready for algebra. By providing a solid math and problem-solving foundation with whole numbers, fractions, decimals, ratios, and percentages, Operation Neptune will give you a great head start for algebra.


  • Build your math confidence. Problem-solving hints and calculator and customization options make learning math easier and more enjoyable.


  • Enhance your math skills with real-life word problems. Solving word problems and using measurement concepts such as area, distance, and volume help you see how math can be used in the real world.


  • Strengthen problem-solving and thinking skills. Reading and interpreting data found in charts, graphs, maps, and tables will help improve your problem-solving skills.
