Math 24 is a game invented by Robert Sun, with the purpose of engaging students in a way that focuses on process and patterns, since the answer, 24, is already a given. To play, students have to use all four numbers on each card drawn, using addition, subtraction, multiplication, and/or division. Cards progress in difficulty, with students earning points for each correct solution.
