The M3 mini games are enveloped in an engaging narrative with multimedia events, characters, and environments. The narrative takes place in a theme park in which a brother and sister are trapped, and there are monsters that apparently are trying to harm them. As the story unfolds, the siblings realize that the monsters themselves are being held captive as well. To free themselves and the friendly monsters, the duo must solve a series of mathematical games.
Currently, M3 is available for schools, school districts, and in-home use. The product will be available for mobile devices in 2012.
