It also says the Civil War was the bloodiest war with more death then World War 1 and 2, the Revolutionary War, and other wars combined. That's a lot!!! There is way more about the Civil War than I thought, so keep digging. Article posted May 15, 2012 at 03:35 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 225

You had to try and get questions correct to win the money. When you play this game you multiply to get your answer, but beware the fraction might be 20/30 and you have to reduce it to 2/3 for the correct answer. Good luck!

If you do not like the first game there are other games but they have the same title but different problems instead. You should try all the other games if you want because they are fun because they all are about math. Article posted April 26, 2012 at 03:58 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 44
 Article posted April 19, 2012 at 03:39 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 82 The first game I played was were you put numbers in a box to try and get the number they put. EX Try and make 3 4 7 make 31. So after you do that, you wait for them to check your answer. This game you have to think where to put the numbers. Anyway, this game is fun so try it if you think it would be a good game. Also for this game you follow PEMDAS and keep going till you get the answer. Then when you finish that game you play this game were equations come down and you have to follow PEMDAS. You should try this game sometime if you like MATH!!! Article posted April 19, 2012 at 03:39 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 82

When you play this game you have to look at both questions and choose the one you think is better to use to pass your rivals. Anyway you should try this game because it will help you answer more quickly. Also, for this other game, you click the numbers from lowest to highest so you have to scan the screen to search for negative number before you move along. It also is very fun to play because you try to get a good score. Article posted April 17, 2012 at 03:37 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 49

In the second game, Kevin scored 1/4 of 20 Jordan got 2/4 of 20 and Nick got 1/4 of 20. So how to you think all three guys got in the first game to get 20 in all and how many goals in all for the second game to get 20.

Any way if you have ever noticed that the next level you get two more letters added to the level. Well any way if I liked this game so should others and I hope that people that played this game were glad about the score they got because I thought I got a really good score. Well see you later and I hope you enjoyed this game. Article posted February 15, 2012 at 04:52 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 67

The first one was 1/1 and the next one was 2/3 so if you notice that the numerator is *2 and the denominator is *3 so that is how the next square is 4/9 So if you keep on going you will get up to 64/729 for this problem but it is weird how 1/1 can get all the way up to 64/729 by multiplying the numerator by 2 and the denominator by 3.

Then I got 35 in the square so I estimated how much every triangle is in every square and that is how I got 1 over 510. Any way, this fraction flower problem was fun and I thought I got the right answer for this equation. The correct answer was 1 over 512 because it is 32 times 16 is 512, so it is 1 over 512.

Then she estimated how many hours she worked in one day. Then estimated how many days she worked. DAD: He gets up at 7am or 6am if he goes in early for a meeting. Then he gets off at 6pm. Or he goes in at 2pm and gets off at 12am. So he estimated how many hours a day and how many days he worked. And they both say you should estimate to see how close your number will be to your number model. Article posted October 10, 2011 at 04:52 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 126
