I got 50% on the first try and then I got better and better each time I played the game. When you are on Difficult, and you get more than 3 points in 60 seconds: Expert! And I got more then 3 points in 60 seconds. The next game is about the Multiplying Fractions Millionaire Game. You can play one player or two players. I was a one player and all you have to do is multiply fractions and simplify them. Article posted May 7, 2012 at 03:13 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 63

The second game was about solving equations with a missing number as a letter . The third game was about solving equations with a number and a letter next to it. I didn't like these as much, if you want to try these games, you can. Article posted April 26, 2012 at 10:11 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 43
 Article posted April 18, 2012 at 10:17 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 120 There are four math games to play. My Favorite game was the fifth game called Basket Math. The first site was a video about the Order of Operations. The second game was about using the order of the operations. The third game was about using the math expressions with exponents. The fourth game was about putting the numbers in order to have the numbers match the number problem. The fifth game was about getting the operations in the right order. You should try this game!!!!

 Article posted April 17, 2012 at 03:59 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 76 These games are about positive and negative numbers. The negative numbers game is about popping the balloons from smallest to largest. I got 0 the first time, and then I got 5 the second time. The positive numbers game is about getting your speedboat across the finish line before the other speedboats pass the finish line. You have to click the right and highest answer to the number problem. If you get it right, you go faster, and if you get it wrong, you go slower. I got last the first time because there weren't any instructions, but the second time I got first and for all the other games I played, I got fist too. You should try this game.

This game is very similar to Connect Four ( 4 ). For a good warm-up, you could use this game to warm up for Math=http://! Article posted April 11, 2012 at 08:45 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 61

I have learned about fractions, percents, decimals, and a lot of other things. Have you learned about a lot of things too? Maybe go back into my blog and play all the games that are there. Try playing the games a couple times, this could help your understanding of all things that I have put on my blog. Go back and try it.

In all of these games you try to find the median or try to match the percent, the equivalent fraction, and the picture together. You might like these games, I know I like them. Try the games, you might like them. Article posted March 29, 2012 at 03:51 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 71
 Article posted March 6, 2012 at 04:59 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 82 The way you play Magic Pen is that you try to get the circle past the check mark, with using the magic pen to draw shapes. Once you get to level 5 and 6, it starts to get really hard. You would have to use your brain a lot. If you want to try to pass all the levels, I'm warning you. But if you defeat all the levels, please comment and tell me how you did it. Also tell me if it was easy or hard or how you felt about the game.
