Instructions for Use


Millennium Bug Race provides students with practice adding 4-digit numbers.

To use Millennium Bug Race, find a partner to play against. Type each name in the text fields. To practice adding 4-digit numbers, type the lowest 4-digit number or 1000 in the first text field and the highest 4-digit number or 9999 in the second text field. Click 'Play'. Add the two numbers together and press the required letter on the keyboard before the bug. You only have a few seconds to work out the answer. If the answer is right, the bug moves forward. This is a very challenging game.
