The goal of Number Tournament is to boost number fluency through fun games. We believe strong number sense leads to higher math achievement and more advanced problem solving skills!
What is Number Tournament?
The Number Tournament consists of 2 individual and 1 team game. For many of the games, the participants will use certain numbers to make a given result within a designated time, in a manner similar to the well-known 24 Game.
Examples: how close can you get to 70 by using 2, 5, 5, 6? How do you use 2, 3, 4, 5 to make 24?
See Rules page for details.
