Includes 2 worksheets for all the students to write their answers on.
I WOULD SUPPLY PLENTY OF SCRAP PAPER
I have included a menu driven PowerPoint with an answer for each number (0-100).
Including every possible answer for each number would probably be impossible.
I have only had a few students get anywhere near completing the worksheet.
It has worked well when a table of students have collaborated on the task.
The most important learning objective, for me is that once they get an answer for a number that they use it to generate other answers in a somewhat methodical fashion.
eg say they stated with 4!+4+4+4=36
go on to 4!+4+4-4=28, 4!+4-4-4=20, 4!-4-4-4=12 4!+4+(4-4)=29 4!+4+(4x4)=44 4!+(4x4x4)=88 etc etc
