3.0 out of 5 stars Excel is required. 29 Nov. 2014
By Hannah
A lot of the activities here rely on Microsoft Excel to work. In particular, you need the 'Analysis Toolpak Add-in' in Excel for many of the games which I do not have on my version of Excel. The purpose of this add-in is for generating random numbers. I spent ages trying to figure out a way around it, even downloading an add-in recommended by Microsoft that is a substitute for this 'Analysis Toolpak'. However, it did not work for me. Perhaps, a more tech-savvy person could figure out a substitute for the 'Analysis Toolpak' but it took me a great of time trying and with no success.

If, however, you do have the 'Analysis Toolpak', then you'll only ever need prepare the resources once, save them to your laptop and they'll be ready to go. The activities do look good as fun starters to a maths lesson and for reinforcing concepts and skills. It's also an opportunity for integration with ICT too.

The heavy reliance on a certain version of Excel though has left few activities for me to try. Quite disappointed. If you're thinking of buying, make sure you have the 'Anaysis Toolpak'!!
