  Twelve Flash games, with voice-over narration, to accompany
  the Everyday Mathematics curriculum. Play against the
  computer in games of chance to practice arithmetic and other
  basic math skills. The winner of the game is usually
  determined by sheer chance, but students must do the
  arithmetic correctly to complete a turn, or try again.

                        GOLDEN MEAN DAY

     http://enc.org/features/calendar/unit/0,1819,152,00.shtm

  August 13th was 61.8 percent of the way through the year --
  "a fitting day to proclaim Golden Mean Day," according to the
  ENC Classroom Calendar. Although that date has passed, your
  classroom may celebrate during the school year by figuring
  out, as ENC suggests, what 61.8 percent of the school year
  would be, or 61.8 percent of a specific month.
