This arithmetic math game trains multiplication and addition skills, and short-term memory.
Quickly multiply prices and quantities of apples and eggs, then add them for a really simple but effective brain training exercise.
To begin, click the Play Game link or button under the picture at left. This opens the game in a pop-up window.
Wait for the game to load, type your name in the Enter Your Name box, and click the Start button.
This is excellent training for your short-term memory, because you have to hold the total cost of the apples in your memory as you calculate the cost of the eggs.
HOW TO PLAY. You're at the local farmer's market, and you want to buy some apples and eggs. The number and apples and eggs you need are shown on the screen as well as the current prices of each.
Your goal is to figure out how much money you owe the farmer for your purchase.
As quickly as you can, mentally calculate the total cost of the apples (quantity needed times cost per apple). Next calculate the cost of the eggs using the same method.
Add the total cost of the apples and eggs together to determine how much money you owe, and type this amount in the Total box. Press the Enter or Return key or click the apple to the right of the Total box to see whether you got it right.
Each time you shop, the prices of the apples and eggs change as do the quantity of each that you need. After about ten rounds the game asks whether you want to keep going. When this happens, just click the Continue Game button to keep playing. You can close the game anytime by clicking the 'X' in the upper right of the game window.
One downside of this game is it doesn't keep your score. I don't think that's a big deal, but if you want to track your progress just write down how many rounds you completed per minute along with the number you got right or wrong.
This Farm Stand arithmetic math game is somewhat silly and simplistic, but I really like it, because it forces you to perform multiplication and addition in your head at the same time.
Sometimes simple games are the most effective. Complete ten rounds or more of this arithmetic math game as fast as you can, and I guarantee you'll give your brain a workout. Have fun!
