Learn the powers of two up to 2048! | ||||||||||||||

Learning the sequence of doubling numbers (powers of two) is a worthwhile pursuit for children of all ages. This game is lots of fun to play, does not require the player to already know the doubling sequence, but presents the numbers in context and in a way that will help the child learn and recognise them. Play the game little and often! Do not spend hours and hours playing but do spend ten minutes every day working to improve your score. Your personal best score is shown at the top right of the screen and this provides a target for you to try and beat. Earn trophies as you achieve the high score tiles. Enjoy playing the game and learning more mathematics as you do. |

Comment recorded on the 19 June 'Starter of the Day' page by Nikki Jordan, Braunton School, Devon: "Excellent. Thank you very much for a fabulous set of starters. I use the 'weekenders' if the daily ones are not quite what I want. Brilliant and much appreciated." Comment recorded on the 28 May 'Starter of the Day' page by L Smith, Colwyn Bay: "An absolutely brilliant resource. Only recently been discovered but is used daily with all my classes. It is particularly useful when things can be saved for further use. Thank you!" |

"Keep in mind you can achieve numbers higher than 2048 I have actually managed to reach 4096. The language used on the webpage implies the game ends after reaching 2048 and trophies aren't tracked for numbers higher than 2048 and this all irks me."

"Keep in mind, you can get 128 by random swipes, but that is quickly game over."
