Unexpectedly Intriguing!
12 May 2023

Earlier this week, the trailer for the public beta release of a new math game dropped. Called SineRider, it promises to transport you "into a mesmerizing world of puzzles and love, inspired by the TI-84". Here's the very short video introduction:

The game was built by Hack Club, the GitHub-based worldwide community of high school hackers. It takes you through a series of puzzles in which you write or modify math equations to solve how to sled through a series of points or a target trajectory. The puzzles start with straight lines and become get progressively more complex as you go through. And then you get to curves, including parabolas and trigonometric functions, where the real fun begins!

TI-84 refers to a family of Texas Instruments' graphic calculators, which many students become very familiar with in high school math and science classes.

There are a lot worse ways to pass time online! If you're looking for other math-oriented games, try out John Conway's Game of Life.
