The 24® Game Turns 24!
The year 2012 marks the 24th Anniversary
of the 24 Game.
Robert Sun, president and CEO of Suntex International Inc. created the first edition of the game, Single DIgits, in 1988.
“When I created the 24 Game, my goal was to make math appealing and accessible to all children. The game format allows young people the freedom to make mistakes without being judged,” says Sun. He believes that the more children play, the more they engage in Deep Practice, which leads to fluency in, and permanent retention of, basic math skills.
In 1988, Sun's hope was that the 24 game would serve as a tool to help create a new generation of thinkers. In 2002, with the rise of a generation of web learners, Sun created the web-based First In Math® Online Program, which has its foundation in the 24 Game’s principles.
"As they have done for the past 24 years, this next generation of students will find the freedom to explore math challenges with the 24 Game," says Sun.
To commemorate our 24th year, a special ANNIVERSARY EDITION of the 24 Game has been created! Included are 24 double-sided, 4'' x 4'' Single Digits cards and complete instructions.
