The core group of G Suite apps are docs, slides, sheets and forms. All of which I’ve used over the past 2 years. However, I recently discovered Google Apps Scripts, a hidden gem built into the suite. Bottom line, I can add another level of customization to my Google creations using Google app scripts.
My First Google Script Activity
When students open the spreadsheet, they’ll see 21 addition and subtraction problems. Once an answer is calculated, students enter the sum or difference in the corresponding red box and then press enter. At any point during the activity, a student can check their answers by pressing the button icon.
Correct answers are indicated two ways. The red box turns green and the hidden picture slowly appears.

The Catch (no pun intended)
- Since the activity was created using Google Script Apps, students will have give their permission for the coding to run. Press continue.
2. Select account
3. Select Allow
Once students click the necessary buttons, they have access to the activity. Enjoy!
