Age Appropriateness


Bowling Pin Math is an awesome game where students must determine which math problems (located on the bowling pins) have answers that are greater than or less than the target number. In this way, students must evaluate ten math problems at once, rather than just the standard way of evaluating one math problem at a time. Students must bowl ten frames and score as close to 100 as possible.
