In this 15 minute video, Mary Holden and her 4th/5th grade class reason about the appropriateness of different computational methods (base-ten blocks, calculators, mental math, or paper and pencil) to specific problems. The video includes a description of how the teacher manages her multi-level class and encourages hands on exploration and discussion in small group learning sessions. At the conclusion of the video are reflection questions for professional development.

This number challenge is an opportunity to reinforce mental arithmetic and order of operations while developing systematic work habits. Students are asked to use the numbers 4, 6, 6, and 8 (exactly once each) and the four basic operations to find as many ways as they can to represent the number 24. There are over 60 different ways! The Teachers' Notes page includes suggestions for implementation, discussion questions, ideas for support, and a link to a related article, Opening Out. (cataloged separately).

This Java applet game promotes mental math and strategic thinking skills using a card from Suntex's 24 Game. The player is presented with four numbers (1-9) on a card. The goal is to manipulate each of the four numbers only once so that the end result is 24. Addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and/or parentheses maybe used and the player must be able to enter the expression using the online calculator.
