Hi Tina,
I'm captivated by this idea, even though I don't teach math (shudder). Here's a link to a review of this game.

Hi everyone,

Last night my husband was showing me a game called Brain Evolution that came with his handheld phone. Please let me know if you are aware of games similar to this one. Basically the software gave sets of two numbers to add or subtract, and most of these were two digit numbers. The gamer is challenged to add or subtract these numbers correctly before the timer runs out. I think this kind of game would be great for contests in the classroom or for individual use to build math speed and accuracy.

Thanks for your suggestions.

Tina
