This is a classic game studied by Buddhist monks and programming gurus alike. 

Game Rules:

Move the tower from the left to the right using the middle to help.  The only rule is that each block must be placed on top of a larger block.  It’s a simple mathematical challenge that’s not as easy as it sounds.

Math Skills:

Visualization – This game challenges your ability to visualize as many steps in advance as possible.  It is great practice for expanding this part of your mathematical ability.

Calculation - To find an efficient solution requires precise mathematical calculations.  Determine which sequence of moves will accomplish the goal in the shortest amount of time.

Fun Tips:

Devise a rough mathematical algorithm in your head.  Then try to make it more efficient.  The real challenge of this game is to move the tower in the least possible number of moves.
