The Date Game is a solitary recreational mathematics game. The object of the game is to use the digits from the date to create equations for all the numbers from 0-100. A few rules are involved.

1. Only ones digit.

2. You cannot repeat numbers, unless they are repeated in the date. eg. 01, 11, 2001. You can use four ones, but only four ones.

3. You can use any mathematical operation.

4. You can use any exponent.



Invention

The game was invented by the quite brilliant teacher of Mathematics, Mr Date, whilst he was working at Tanglin Trust School in the late 90s. He still uses it today to entertain his wonderful Year 10 Add Maths class at Jerudong International School.
