  • To get the most of this activity it needs to be repeated! Getting the correct answer first time can be done by trial and improvement. If the activity is repeated (refresh this page or press the F5 key for Internet Explorer) and the challenge is to be first with the correct answer a better strategy is required encourage students to think about the problem in a different way.
