Place Value Quick Shot is an interactive computer game that provides players with practice in place value up to three digits. The learning takes place within a fun, arcade-style basketball game. Players can choose from three difficulty levels (two-digit, three-digit, and expanded notation). There are timed rounds in which players look at the representation of the number and choose the basketball with the correct value. The more you get right, the more points you earn. The game offers a nice reward system that allows students to redeem their points earned for virtual prizes.
The math skills in Place Value Quick Shot are appropriate for the age range and are baked into the game experience. Students will enjoy the gaming atmosphere, and skills learned can be transferred to other outside tasks. There's a Score Report screen where players can see how much they've played and how successful they've been. There are also printable pre- and post-assessments that can be given to students.
