Virtual Salon

vs

Virtual Salon is an interactive ‘game’  based in a Salon. It was designed to encourage students to think about the maths used in industry (specifically… well, guess). The maths used is not tenuous at all, it’s actually very accurate. Stock checks, salaries, taxes etc.

Might be useful to get some of those disengaged ‘never gonna use maths’ students back on board a bit.
