A new challenge ... Pouring Liquid

Ideas for improvement and/or bug reports please!

It would be better not to have any time limit for this one, just a fixed number of questions. I find the time limit annoying.

Hi Mathsisfun and Jane;

I scored 39 is that good? Have to disagree the time limit makes the game. Nicely done Maths.

I don't get it...

I'll be here at least once every month. XP

Heh, I just got 39 too. (Mixed)

Pretty good game overall, my one complaint is that the conical containers are a bit confusing.

For a while I was using the given circle as the base of the "liquid cone" rather than the "container cone", and then wondering why my estimates were so awful.

Then again, it does make more sense to do it that way.

Why did the vector cross the road?

It wanted to be normal.

Maybe a shaded inner circle?

Cones are very non-intuitive ... I found myself checking the calculations quite a lot when I was developing.

Updated: has shaded section for cones, and cylinders now come in ".5" sizes.

I got 79 but had no cones, only cylinders. Was I playing the same game as you guys?

Hi jl

How is everything going?

Try the game again, refresh the page from your browser.

Pick "mixed"

Hi justlookingforthemoment;

Obviously, you and I are not playing the same game! I want to play your game.

When I uploaded the previous version it was in "only cylinders" mode.

Okay, tried a second time. I think I preferred my score the first time I played!

Things are well but busy, which I guess it good. How are things here? I just signed up to Mathopolis (thought I had already signed up but it turns out not). Nice work Rod, it's good fun. But my goodness, slow down mathsy, are you a bot?

I think we should just be thankful mathsy is on our side.

I see you have already had some successes on Mathopolis.

What makes your life busy?
