Estimation

Along with the games I am making for Mathopolis, I have made Estimation - Introduction (plus a few others linked from there).

What do you think?

Any errors?

Anything I should also mention?

Re: Estimation

At the last second i accidently pressed two mumbers by accident (it came up - too quickly -5pnts
or sum thin like that)

On the screen it said total-137 pnts but on the score which is SW of it sed score: 145pnts

Also for me on my third try it kept coming up 2-6-6-6-6-2-2-6-2-2-6-2-5-2-6-6-2-3-6-6-2-2-2-4-5

Mostly 2s and sixes, no 1s

it also gives you no pnts for going one number over i think it should be 4 ticks.

Re: Estimation

At the the bottom of the page where you have to give an answer on how many is there, it won't let me click or type but it still comes up the cursor, indicating you have to type. But if you double-click it, it comes up in the box 48.

The game is good, I think it will help thinking skills, without thinking! up Nice work!

Re: Estimation

Thanks White Wolf ... that sounds odd. I wonder what is happening?

Which exact game was it?

Re: Estimation

No, the game is fine with me it is the bit under:

There is an orange box about 30x20. (roughly) Now if you move your mouse it, it shows a cursor.
I tried to click it but it doesn't let you type, I then double clicked it it showed '48'.

I thought you were supposed to guess or something, I guess not.
