2013 Mathematics game

Happy Year 2 0 1 3 !

The 2013 mathematics game is a neat game with numbers, suitable for many ages.


The basic idea is very simple: using the digits from 2013, form mathematical expressions for the counting numbers 1-100.

You have to use every digit 2, 0, 1, and 3. For example, number 5 could be formed as

(2 + 3) × 1 + 0 = 5

OR

(2 + 3) ÷ 1 + 0 = 5

OR

3! − 2 + 1 + 0 = 5


(3! is 3 factorial, which means 1 × 2 × 3)

You can even use decimals:

.2 /0.1 + 3 + 0 = 5

So, the task is to do this for numbers 1-100!
For smaller students, you could limit it to numbers 1-10.

Please see Denises's post for the full rules and other info.

Have fun!
