Resources for Students

App Recommendations

Sushi Monster: Scholastic's app offers children multiplication and addition problems. They'll have to reach a target number by picking the correct factors and addends listed on different pieces of sushi.

Math Monsters - Bingo: Students can practice all operations using this bingo app. They'll solve each problem and then find the answer on the bingo board. Players need to be strategic if they want to win the game.

Math Flash Cards*: A traditional skill-and-drill app (yes, the asterisk is part of the title), Math Flash Cards * helps children practice their times tables by customizing the number and difficulty level of each question. This app has a simple interface that makes it easy for kids to play.

Addition and Multiplication Bubbles: This app gives students an opportunity to practice addition and multiplication skills — which are always important. You can use many number combinations to solve each problem, allowing for flexibility.

Math Drills & Math Training: Both of the these apps are ideal because they collect data and help you work on certain numbers at a time. I suggest setting small goals — review one at a time, or group numbers that make sense (i.e.,1s and 10s, 2s and 4s, or 3s and 6s).

Everyday Math Apps: Top It, Fractions, Name That Number, Beat The Computer, Baseball Multiplication – all fun games to support kids of all ages. Some are free, but the ones that aren’t often go on sale!

Jigsaw Puzzle: Put together puzzles and choose the number of pieces. This is an excellent way to work on problem solving skills. Best part – you wont lose any pieces!

Math Slide: A series of multi-player games, designed to help children understand place value & the four operations. Players learn by sliding tiles into the center to match an answer, equation or image. The player who slides their tiles first wins.

Web Recommendations

Word Problems for Kids
A great selection of word problems for grades 5-12. A hint and a complete solution available for each problem.

A+ Click
A+ Click features a graduated set of over 4,700 challenging problems for students in grades one through twelve, starting from the very simple to the extremely difficult. The questions concentrate on understanding, spatial reasoning, usefulness, and problem solving rather than math rules and theorems. The problems adapt to student ability.

KenKen Puzzle Official Site
Kenken is an excellent game to practice the four operations and logical thinking. Lower elementary children can use addition/subtraction and others can use multiplication/division or all four operations. You can choose the size of the game, operations, and the difficulty level.

5x5 Kakuro Puzzles
Kakuro puzzles are "cross-sum" puzzles -- like mathematical crossword puzzles. Each "word" must add up to the number provided in the clue above it or to the left.

A visual game of patterns.

These logic puzzles build stamina and perseverance, and are incredibly satisfying when you solve them!

STRATEGY GAMES (Commercial)

Though not "math", playing games that involve strategy, planning, organization and shifting strengthens the background skills we need to be successful in math. Play a game, have some fun!
