Submitted by John Wood on Mon, 2010-02-22 22:13

#### Level: L1, L2

Not for the faint-hearted! Covers topics such as war/guns, eye balls, water, burgers and flies. However it is bound to interest students and is a great way to practise working with very large numbers and converting between metric measures. Focuses learners on deciding which operation (multiplication or division) is required for each problem.
