Teacher Review (Not based on classroom experience) Reviewer: KT8, May 26 2007 07:01:45:060AM |

Review based on: personal experience |

Appropriate for: practice of skills and understandings |

Other Comments: I've used the "24" game with my students and math club extensively; this is a great alternative that kids can use at home. This version could be even more game-like, and therefore more engaging to students, if there was a specific cell for the students to work out the problem, then press enter to see if they correctly got to 24. If this cell was pre-formatted so the text was as large as the given numbers, it would be an effective whole-class game with a projector. |
