The lack of parentheses in this program makes computation of some numbers difficult, if not impossible. You think generally you would be able to use order of operations to get around this, but when you need to divide the sum of a group of numbers by the sum of another set, it isn't possible to demonstrate in this game. We teach the kids to use the parentheses in class and yet in a game developed by McGrall-Hill they don't include the ability to do it in this app?!?! I would have expected more from this company.
I agree with previous commenters that the inability touse parentheses significantly restricts this game app. Theoretically you should be able to use all 5 numbers every time, but without parentheses, you are limited to woking from left to right. Fix that, and you've got a great app and 5 stars from me!
No ((((())))) !!!!!!!!!
There are no parenthesis is this game, which is needed to perform order of operations with mixed operators! Until McGraw Hill can fix this, it is a completely useless App!!!! Sadly, a few big publishing houses have taken over the American Education System only to deliver inferior products. This App is proof positive of the publishing houses commitment to delivering poorly designed educational products.
