Transmissions Specialists

These specialists receive information from near their planet about where the lost ship has been each day. The information is encoded and they must decode it using:

  1. Words = Greek symbols
  2. Each letter = Circular symbols
  3. Words = Math equations [for example: (3 x 4) was (10 + 10)]

They then complete a problem-solving chart to track where the ship has been spotted each day Monday through Friday and help predict the location of the lost ship for rescue.
