Drag the cat and release to see it fly up to the shelves!
This game is intended to provide a little bit of fun with a loose mathematical connection. There is of course mathematics involved in knowing the angle and stretch required to get the cat to the correct shelf. There is also mathematics involved in following the instructions about the number sequences.
The sequences appear here for those who have a Transum Subscription.
