Published on 06/09/2008

Activity Overview

In "One Hour", a group of kidnappers takes a small boy hostage and evades the FBI in a chase through Los Angeles. When Don asks Charlie and Amita to help stay one step ahead of the kidnappers, Charlie realizes that the kidnappers are leading them on a chase through the city as if the streets were a maze-a logic maze. This activity analyzes a logic maze based on the Greek myth about Theseus and the Minotaur.
