GAME EXAMPLES
Hit the Target
Use 9, 2, 6, and 7 to hit the target 45. Four students come up with these possible solutions in the 90 seconds allotted.

(9+7) x 2 +11 = 43 (scores 8 points)

7 * 7 + 9  11 = 47 (scores 8 points)

(11+7) x 2 + 9 = 45 (hits the target and scores 10 points)

T(9) * sqrt(117)/2 = 45, where T(n) indicates the nth triangular number (hits the target and scores 10 points)
24 Game
Use 5, 3, 6, 6 to make exactly 24. Four students come up with these possible solutions in the 90 seconds allotted.

(6+6) x (53) = 24

5! / (3!  6/6) = 24

sqrt(6 x 6) x 5  3! = 24

(6+35) * 6 = 24
All of these solutions score 10 points. â€‹
DMAS (NEW GAME)
Use one row, column, or diagonal to hit the target 14 using division, multiplication, addition, and subtraction. As a team, students come up with these possible solutions in the 3 minutes allotted.â€‹
Sample answers:

(81) x 2 = 7 x 2 = 14

4 x 2 + 6 = 8 + 6 = 14
â€‹
both these answers are given 10 points!
Sample (incorrect) responses:

1 + 9 + 4 = 14â€‹â€‹â€‹â€‹ (must use 2 different operations)

2 x 8  1 = 16  1 = 15 (while this solution correctly uses two different operations it doesn't hit the target so no points are given D:)
SMASH

Your teammate sprints and gets the numbers 4, 7, and 2. Your team submits 4 x 2  7 = 1.

Then the teammate gets Ace, 3, and 9. You solve to get 9/31 = 2.

Next, you get 8, 8, 2; your team is stuck so you sprint back to get a new set of numbers.

You get 6, 10, 8, and find that (10+8)/6 = 3 works.

Repeat this process until time runs out!
