## Age Appropriateness/Rationale

 It’s not Facebook, It’s not MySpace, it’s BMF, Best Math Friends. Friend as many current celebrities and historical figures(or animated animals for the younger grades) as you can by answering their word problems. See if you can friend all 50 (or 25 in one case) ! Be careful though, if you answer too many problems incorrectly the game will end. Simply click “correct” if the word problem and answer given by the celebrity or historical figure is correct, and “incorrect” if it is not correct. When you are finished, print out a certificate featuring all of your friends!
