Mental Math – Phone Number Configurations

Take turns making a math problem out of your telephone number. Let’s make up a telephone number (I hope it isn’t yours!) 112-8587.

  • Add all the numbers together = 32
  • Add two digits, subtract the next, then add, subtract, add, and finally subtract the last = 4
  • Put the digits in order from smallest to largest = 1125788
  • Divide the number from above by 2 = 562894

Keep going until everyone gets brain freeze. (Note for very young members choose two digits from the phone number to add or subtract.)
