Description

Cave Run Division makes practicing division FUN!  In Cave Run, you gather coins while exploring an underground cave.  Be careful of the underground volcanoes, boulders, ice traps, and crevasses.  Your explorer starts running along the cave floor collecting gold coins.  Click on the mouse to make him jump from platform to platform.  As the explorer gets farther and farther into the cave, the levels increase in speed and difficulty.  If jumping over volcanoes isn't enough, throughout the game he will be given division problems to solve.

Division practice is fun with games like this.

Instructions

Cave Run Subtraction Step 1After the game loads, the first screen reminds players to JUMP by pressing the left mouse button.  To jump higher, hold the left button down longer.  The object is to collect as many coins as you can while answering division facts.  To begin the action, click anywhere on the opening screen.
Cave Run Subtraction Step 2When the game begins, your explorer runs from left to right.  The distance he travels is shown in the upper right corner of the screen.  Below it are the number of coins collected.
Cave Run Subtraction Step 3Some of the coins are magic and won't let you travel farther until you have correctly answered a division problem.  Click on the correct answer to continue.
Cave Run Subtraction Step 4 As you get farther into the cave, you will run into more hazards.  To jump over them, hold down on the mouse button longer to jump higher.
Cave Run Subtraction Step 5When your explorer misses a jump, the game ends and gives you an option of trying again.  The screen displays the distance you traveled, the number of coins you collected, and your TOTAL SCORE.
