Activity TM 2.2 Deci Darts
Student's Page
The object of the Deci Darts* game is to "pop" balloons located on a number line between 0 and 1. The Darts are "thrown" by entering a number in decimal form.  Here is a glimpse of a game in progress. Two darts (.2 & .3) have been thrown so far. Notice that .3 is too big and .2 is too small.

What would be your next throw? Explain your strategy. 

Play the game*
