Agrinautica provides a rich playground for exploring mathematical expressions and a sandbox environment to build understanding of order of operations. Game prompts help players manipulate expressions properly, and if players are stumped, the game gives them new randomized numbers. Expressions that do not create a target number create a “weed,” but even the simplest expression computing 0-9 yields a beautiful item. Information about each plant, rock, fungus, animal, crystal, or artifact appears in a Field Guide that helps the player understand the expression that created it. During group play students compare and explore various species in conversation with their peers or in response to prompts from the teacher. Each player's Agrinautica world is unique, with six planets available to be terraformed.
