’24’ Game

This morning in Maths, we introduced the game ’24’ to Year 6. It is a mental calculation game with a very simple aim: to make 24 using the given 4 numbers! Each number may be used only once and you can use any operation.

It provides excellent practice for mental agility and speed of calculation. The competitive element was popular, too!
