Cool Math for Kids

Cool Math for Kids has so many great games, activities, lessons, and even flash cards for math learners ages 3-12 (older students can check out Coolmath.com). There is a Teacher Section with ideas on how to use the site in your classroom, as well as continued education, resources, and a few extras.


Multiplication.com has some really fun games to help students master their basic facts. Most of the games would go well with IWBs or stand-alone computer stations, so they would be good to use as individual or group practice.  Some of my favorites include:  Math Wash UpSpace RaceFlight of the KnightSketch’s WorldCastle Quests, and Grand Prix, but there are tons more on the site, so check it out!

  • Builder Ted – The roof is leaking… Dougal Dog is getting wet. Builder Ted needs to fix the roof! Help him climb to the top of the house by placing the bricks on the ladder in numerical order.
  • Magic Squares – A magic square is an arrangement of the numbers from 1 to n^2 (n-squared) in an nxnmatrix, with each number occurring exactly once, and such that the sum of the entries of any row, any column, or any main diagonal is the same.
  • More Magic Squares
  • Yet Even More Magic Squares – Can’t get enough? Here’s more!
  • Multiplication Mystery – Find the hidden picture and practice your multiplication facts
  • Speed Grid – Player (or players) against the clock. Answer all the questions in a pre-selected amount of time. Great for IWB!
  • PowerLines – I LOVE PowerLines! Students need to place the numbers in the circles so that all the numbers in the same straight line add up to the power line total. Sound easy? Think again…
  • Practice Fish – Chose a factor to work on and then solve the math problem by clicking on the correct sea creature swimming by. (Great for IWB, but remind students not to hit the board too hard!)
