My classes also love the 24 game. We use it all year long. There is another
game that may only be good for a few class sessions but doesn't need a
publisher or special equipment. It's the game of four fours. Using exactly 4
fours and any of the basic operations, including ( ), make the answer come
out to 1, then 2, then 3 and so on up to 10. Allowing factorials, exponents
and square roots lets you 'solve' for more values, at least to 20.
