You will have to make your own sticks. Depending on the age and level of your students, you will make them accordingly. Here is how it works:

Stick 1: START: then a math problem. Stick 2: The answer in RED at the left end of the stick. Then a different math problem. Stick 3: The answer to the problem above in RED then a different math problem. Continue to use as many sticks as you want. The last stick will have the answer and then the word FINISH!
