Number Crunch Saga

Number Crunch Saga

A lively numeracy game requiring you to align three numbers to create the given target sum or product. There are five levels to this online game 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.

Comment recorded on the 19 October 'Starter of the Day' page by E Pollard, Huddersfield:

"I used this with my bottom set in year 9. To engage them I used their name and favorite football team (or pop group) instead of the school name. For homework, I asked each student to find a definition for the key words they had been given (once they had fun trying to guess the answer) and they presented their findings to the rest of the class the following day. They felt really special because the key words came from their own personal information."

"I think that having a starter of the day helps improve maths in general. My pupils say they love them!!!"
