Exact and hugely unique, Mathematical Byways is a piece of leisure arithmetic, a suite of inventive difficulties, their much more inventive options, and extensions of the problems--left unsolved here--to additional stretch the brain of the reader. the issues are set in the framework of 3 villages--Ayling, Beeling, and Ceiling--their population, and the relationships (spacial and social) among them. the issues may be solved with little formal mathematical wisdom, even though so much require enormous suggestion and psychological dexterity, and recommendations are all essentially expounded in non-technical language. Stimulating and weird, this booklet proves what Hugh ApSimon has recognized all alongside: arithmetic may be enjoyable!

This example provides a template for other role-play scenarios that can be afforded by MUVEs. There are many other ways in which active learning can take place in MUVEs. Perhaps one of the most impressive types of active learning scenarios in virtual worlds includes the development of virtual labs as exemplified by the biosciences lab at the University of East London (Cobb, Heaney, Corcoran, & Henderson-Begg, 2009). This experimental study recreated a virtual Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) experiment in Second Life designed to amplify DNA for use in molecular biology, biotechnology, and forensics.
