Cut out and use the digits and symbols to make math expressions that equal the numbers from 1 to 100. Example: (2 + 0) - 0 + 0.

Rules of the Game: Use only the digits 2, 0, 0, and 0, in any order, with the operations +, -, x, ÷, ^(raised to a power), sqrt(square root), and !(factorial), to write expressions for the counting numbers 1 through 100. Grouping symbols may also be used, and multi-digit numbers such as 20, 200, 0.02 may be used this year. Write your answers without using equal signs.

Correct format:(2 + 0) - 0 + 0.

Incorrect format:2 + 0 = 2 - 0 = 2 + 0 = 2.
