Three Ways

Three Ways

Can you get to the target number by multiplying together four different one digit numbers? Can you do it in three different ways? There are nine levels to this online challenge and a virtual Transum Trophy available for each level.

Learning the sequence of doubling numbers (powers of two) is a worthwhile pursuit for children of all ages. This game is lots of fun to play, does not require the player to already know the doubling sequence, but presents the numbers in context and in a way that will help the child learn and recognise them.

Play the game little and often! Do not spend hours and hours playing but do spend ten minutes every day working to improve your score. Your personal best score is shown at the top right of the screen and this provides a target for you to try and beat. Earn trophies as you achieve the high score tiles.

Enjoy playing the game and learning more mathematics as you do.

"We all love your starters. It is so good to have such a collection. We use them for all age groups and abilities. Have particularly enjoyed KIM's game, as we have not used that for Mathematics before. Keep up the good work and thank you very much

"Keep in mind you can achieve numbers higher than 2048 I have actually managed to reach 4096. The language used on the webpage implies the game ends after reaching 2048 and trophies aren't tracked for numbers higher than 2048 and this all irks me."
