Easy to learn and challenging to play! The goal is to make the number 24 using all four numbers on the electronic card. You can add, subtract, multiply or divide. Each number can only be used once and yes, there is at least one solution to each card! Most cards have multiple solutions.
Touch START button to engage the timer. Four numbers appear on the yellow wheel. Touch on the first number, then slide your finger to the next number, then select the desired operation (+ – x ÷). Continue play in this manner.
If your solution is correct, a smiley face appears in the white box in the center of the wheel and the game automatically shows the next card. The blue strength meter will record your number of successful completions. After 8 correct plays, the game will record your best time. Player's Current time and Best time are displayed - Beat your best time, or challenge your friends to see who has the best time!
There are three levels of difficulty indicated by dots in the corner of the cards—1 Dot cards are easy, 2 Dot cards are medium and 3 Dot cards are tough.
Choose one number on the card and turn the other three into the numbers you need. For example: If you have a 4, try and make a 6, 20, 28 or 96.
Look at the numbers not as four independent numbers, but as two pairs. For example: On the card 3, 7, 5, 4. Pair the 7 & 5 (add) as a 12, and the 3 & 4 (multiply) as a 12, so 12 + 12 = 24.
Look for Patterns! The most common patterns that make the target number 24
are 6 x 4, 8 x 3, 12 x 2, 24 x 1.
In 1988, successful inventor Robert Sun embarked on a journey to teach children the relationship between numbers through a game. The result of his efforts was the 24® Game.
“I wanted to demonstrate that mathematics can be powerful, engaging and fascinating,” says Sun. “Knowing the answer is always 24 alleviates a classic brand of math anxiety—getting the right answer—and instead puts the emphasis on the process and patterns, what I like to call ‘the method behind the math.’ ”
