Over 6000 students completed over 600,000 equations – most of those during the first 5 days! Total student playing time reached almost 10 full months (24 hour per day)!! An amazing effort by all. Quite a few classrooms achieved over 95% mastery and all the students were exposed to (and hopefully excited by) the conceptual ideas involved in solving algebraic equations. Thanks to all who participated.
