Tower of Hanoi

Tower of Hanoi

Move the pieces of the tower from one place to another in the minimum number of moves. This puzzle was invented in 1883 but is still as captivating today as it was all those years ago.

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.

"This is an excellent website. We all often use the starters as the pupils come in the door and get settled as we take the register."
