Numberz!

I found a nice math online game. The aim is to clear the playfield making necessary sums of numbers in the neighbouring tiles. When a coloured tile is involved in the sum, it gets replaced by a white tile. You can play the game online or download the game on your computer.



The game is a Flash game and looks very nice. It was originally a bit too big for my laptop screen until I noticed that the size can be changed.

At first I thought that the game was too easy until I got stuck with a tile having number 8. It was a corner tile and all its neighbours were too large to sum up to 10. I had some difficulties deleting the neighbours and waiting for smaller tiles to show up :) This just shows the same thing I am trying to teach my students: consider the situation first before you start calculating. There may be a very quick solution if you think about it.

Hi leena,
I was a bit busy due to exams and then some travelling so i could not comment regularly on your blog! I am glad to see that you are finding such great games that the kids, like me can enjoy and learn too :D

I thought it was too easy also until I got stuck with a number and failed a level. Nice game but the porn music has to go!

@dineometerdeb
I know what you mean :)
I have been paying Dropz at the same site and can't just stop playing!

I made it to level 36 and it became impossible to complete. I will have to try some of the others now.
