Answer multiple choice questions about basic mathematical ideas. If you get a number of questions correct you will be invited to post a question of your own. The bank of questions grows larger every day.

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.

"Love using the Starter of the Day activities to get the students into Maths mode at the beginning of a lesson. Lots of interesting discussions and questions have arisen out of the activities.
Thanks for such a great resource!"

"Thanks very much for this one. We developed it into a whole lesson and I borrowed some hats from the drama department to add to the fun!"
