# April Gameplays Brings May Math Success — April 2022

### Oh April, a month of spring, lovely flowers, plenty of rain showers, and a bridge to end of year math assessments. Let’s do it well this year by including these games in your assignments to get your students ready!

• Put your architecture cap on because you are Living in Voloom and this new space colony needs to be built! As the best architects say, “Give me a bunch of right rectangular prisms and some glue and you’ll have your building soon.” Ok maybe they’re not the best if they’re using glue, and they also need to consider the formulas V = l × w × h and V = b × h for the volumes of right rectangular prisms. Spatial awareness is critical when building in this new space colony. Do your job well, and there might be statues of you in this colony! See more on Living in Voloom further below.
• Everyone has flaws, even the brightest mathematicians in our history! Newton’s Flaws is a game with a very entertaining storyline where players will be a wizard’s apprentice. Help a struggling village prosper by mastering multiplication of multi-digit whole numbers, all while enjoying some goofy historical references! See more on Newton’s Flaws further below.
