# PONG game to practice'Add 2dp decimals' for 4th grade

With our Pong math game you will be practicing the topic "Add 2dp decimals" from 4th grade / Decimals / Add decimals. The math in this game consists of 16 questions that ask you to add 2 decimal place decimals by arranging them in columns and lining up the decimal points.

This is our version of the classic early computer game "Breakout" (itself a development of the even earlier "Pong" game - we prefer that name) where a player controls a bar that knocks a ball or puck around the screen.

In our version of Pong/Breakout, there are 3 types of bricks for you to break: green bricks are worth just 2 points; yellow bricks are worth a whopping 50 points; breaking white bricks, which are worth 10 points, wins you a math question from the topic you have chosen.

You start with 5 lives. If the ball goes below the paddle, you lose a life and 200 points. The game ends when you answer all 10 questions or lose all your lives.

### Notes

1. This version of Pong is a one player game to learn or revise math
2. Our PONG for math is a scoring game - play a few times and set a personal best score!
3. Addictive! You may end up trying to avoid the white bricks so that you can play for longer...
