What Is Available for Download

With the game(s), there are also several accompanying documents that are also free.

     . Directions for the game
     . PERDI Card generator (in Excel format)

     . and Problem Chooser (in Excel format)

 

Card Generator: you need to print out different cards for your students. This card generator in Excel will allow you to print out as many random cards as you want.

 

Problem Chooser: you need to choose problems for students to do in random order. This Excel application will allow you to do that.

 

There are two versions of these two files:

  • If you are using a version of Excel prior to Office 2007 in both PC and Mac versions, you can use the Macro Version that supports Visual Basic.
  • If you are using the newer version of Office (Office 07 for PC, Office 08 for Mac), these do not support Macros. So use the less hi-tech version that does not support Macros (No Macros).

 

There are four versions of the game, all different. Download any or all of them. They are in PDF format and in large 18 point type that can be seen by anyone in the room when used on a computer projector. They are all free.

 

NOTE: PERDI Version four is significantly more difficult than the other versions.
