This Flash game develops students' computational fluency and flexibility. It can be played alone or with others. Players choose 6 face-down number cards, and the applet provides a target number. Number cards include one each of 25, 50, 75, and 100, and multiple copies of 1 to 10. The goal is to use the selected numbers and the four basic operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division) to arrive at the target. Players can ask the applet to Show a Solution, although others may be possible. Several rule and scoring variations are suggested. A full screen option facilitates use on an interactive board. (This game is not self-checking.)
