The app that got me hooked was Hungry Fish. It's incredibly engaging addictive practice for composing and decomposing numbers. The fish wants to eat a target number. The player feeds the fish by combining bubbles containing numbers that make that sum."

You are invited to join the presentations before the sessions to ensure that you get the video recordings. After the event (August 26, 2013), you may view the lecture sessions and recordings by joining the MMVC13 course on WizIQ and learn at your own pace.
