it's based on Algebra...if I get any more responses, I can post some sites that explain how this works....I did horrible in algebra way back in high school but have since come across some great math games based on it. Who knew?

That was fun and interesting.

What I want to know is what number people picked- do people tend to use the same number? hmmm - i am guessing that 7 maybe common choice? just curious- no i tried it with another number, same results- guess math can be fun!!

chocolate in school---we used m&ms a lot. health (burning calories- we walked down to the football field, we started at one end and ate an m&m then we walked the length- we had burned all the calories from eating it), science (teaching us probabilty and stuff like that for experiments using the colors of them), math (any kind of math obviously), etc. and what do you know i still remember all of those things. m&ms... making a genious out of me. just kidding. :):);)

when i was in 7th grade i believe it was, we started every class off with some sort of math game, just like that one. it was fun. thank you for bringing up old memories i had long forgotten about.

dionna :P
