Paco also known as PacoMon doesn't want to get mad. He needs your help to "get even"! He will follow your lead (mouse pointer) in search of even number tiles. Even numbers end with 0, 2, 4, 6, and 8. You get 1 point for touching an even number. You lose 1 point for touching an odd number. You have 5 minutes! Even numbers are multiples of 2.

This group of numbers are a subset of multiples of 2. Half of Multiples of 2 (even numbers) are multiples of 4. To find multiples of 4, you have to look at their last 2 digits. If they end with 00, 04, 08, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28, 32, 36, 40, 44, 48, 52, 56, 60, 64, 68, 72, 76, 80, 84, 88, 92, 96, they are multiples of 4. For example 136 is a multiple of 4 because it ends with 36. Remember that all multiples of 4 are even, but only half of even numbers are multiples of 4.

Click Start to begin the game. Move away from the rolling Geo spheres or they will crush Paco and make him really mad! At any one time there are 4 numbers on the stage 2 of which are the multiples you are looking for. As soon as you make contact with any number the four numbers change value and they also change positions. There are bonus features built into this multi-level game. During the game, when you reach a certain score, a fruit flies in. Hitting the fruit gives you bonus points and additional time (30 or 50 seconds). If you are really lucky and reach a very high score of 19000, you may get "fruit salad" (all the fruits coming in at the same time)!!! For how the bonus points work look at the table at the bottom of this page.

Suggested Lessons or Activities:

This is a fun way to practise identifying odd and even numbers and multiples.

Special Features:

full screen

works very well with Interactive Whiteboards (Paco follows pointer, no keyboard necessary)

4 number tiles with numbers randomly selected from a bank of 100 different numbers

numbers constantly change positions and value with each hit

Fruit Salad
All the above fruits at the same time!

Examples:

Multiples of 3

- Number -

- Sum of Digits -

- The Sum is also a Multiples of 3 -

12

1 + 2 = 3

The sum of 3 is a multiple of 3

45

4 + 5 = 9

The sum of 9 is a multiple of 3

123

1 + 2 + 3 = 6

The sum of 6 is a multiple of 3

786

7 + 8 + 6 = 21

The sum of 21 is a multiple of 3

Also:
222, 444, 555, etc. are multiples of 3 because the digits are repeated 3 times (or a digit being repeated 6, 9, 12, etc. times)
123, 567, 678, etc. are multiples of 3 because the three digits are a sequence.
246, 369, 468, etc. are multiples of 3 because the three digits are equally spaced apart.
