Where To Find Free Online Math Games For Kids And Adults

Math isn’t a subject that comes easy to many of us, and certainly not for me, personally. The most effective way for me to learn as a kid was by playing math games online. As the years went on, my classmates and I started caring less about the math and more about the games — but that's fine, because we picked up the math along the way.

Now my math skills are at the very least competent (most of the time), and I have fond memories of goofing off in the computer lab at school playing math games online — games that were entertaining-enough time-killers that I’d actually recommend them to adults looking for a fun, educational nostalgia trip.

If you’re looking to boost those math skills, here are some places online where you can find fun, free math games for both kids and adults.

1. (Ages 12+)

A staple from my childhood, Cool Math Games offers a seemingly endless amount of games that can be both extremely math heavy ("Calculate This!", "Plus 10") and extremely math light ("Retro Ping Pong," "Run 3") making it useful for a legitimate mathematical experience or goofing off. Games are organized by play style involving numbers, logic, strategy, and more.

 You often have to sit through ads before your game starts, and there are typically ads on the screen surrounding your game view, meaning you'll need a little patience and probably parental guidance for younger kids, but it’s still a decent educational tool at best and a harmlessly fun time-waster at worst. I definitely did not use it to procrastinate by playing Roblox (a game that makes you move a rectangular block over a set of tiles to get it through an exit point) when I was supposed to be writing this article. Nope, definitely not.

Cool Math Games is part of the Cool Math Network, created in 1997, which also includes the sites Coolmath.com (math lessons for users 13+), and Coolmath4Kids (designed for users 12 and under). According to Celebrity Net Worth, the site creator is known as "Coolmath Karen," and she's a retired community college math teacher. Pretty cool.

2. (Ages 5–12)

Math Playground has a collection of math games sorted by math type: addition, subtraction, multiplication, and so on. Pick a game or a grade level ranging from first to sixth, and start playing. There's also a designated "story math" page for users looking for practice with word problems — it helps users create models for word problems in order to understand the different pieces of the equation and how to solve it. There are plenty of games on the site that are free to play, as well as “premium” games that require a , the cheapest of which will cost you $5.99/month for a 12-month plan — probably not worth it when you can find free games elsewhere. It's also worth noting that the site will only let you play games in full-screen mode if you're a subscriber. Math Playground was created in 2002 by educator Colleen King, "for students in my classes who needed a fun way to practice math facts."

3. (Ages 3–12)

MathGames.com’s homepage is filled with a variety of math games and lessons utilizing a bunch of different mathematical concepts, from addition to fractions to graphing and even money. Pick a game — like "Cat Wars," which asks the player to solve math problems in order for their "cat" to win a tug-of-war over a string of smoked sausage links. Before the game starts, it will ask you to choose a grade level and a mathematical subject to focus on before continuing. You can also see games and lessons directly designated by grade level by clicking “” at the top of the screen. Not all games are free, however. The ones marked with a star require a , the cheapest of which costs $7.50/month for a 12-month plan. The site is owned by TeachMe, a company that, according to its homepage, "works with teachers in schools and parents in homes to create powerful learning tools that combine practice and play in an authentic way."

4. (Ages 18+)

Yes, there are math games for college students and up! There isn’t as much to sort through on College Math Games as the other sites, but you can still play free games that deal with a bunch of college-level mathematical concepts, like calculus, functions, tangents, and a bunch of other stuff I honestly don’t remember how to do anymore and can’t believe I was ever able to understand. College Math Games was created in 2014. Some games deal in more mildly adult themes, like "Shooting Gallery" and "Venn Sniper."

5. (Ages 3–12)

MathGameTime, created by SOFA Entertainment president Josh Solt — who, according to EdTech Digest, created the site with a group of teachers and a child therapist — sorts math games by grade (pre-k–7th) and mathematical subject. Just pick a grade or a subject and you’re presented with a slew of games to choose from. The site also has a "worksheets" page, sorted by grade level and subject, if users are looking for some extra practice. From basic addition and subtraction to algebra (a word that frightens me to this day), there’s a good chance MathGameTime has a free game that suits what you’re looking for. Perhaps "Alien Addition," which requires you to solve simple addition problems in order to prevent an army of UFOs from destroying your spaceship. Ah! Save the galaxy ... with math!

Math may still give some of us migraines, but it's good to know there are places online for everyone to go for help. Maybe math really is just fun and games, after all.

Review

"One of Forbes.com’s 10 Best Conservation and Environment Books of 2016"

"We know that nature's theater bristles with industrious carnivores and omnivores--hawks that pluck cardinals right off a bird feeder, squirrels that grab eggs from crows' nests, and crows that grab babies from squirrels' nests. What makes free-ranging cats such an exceptionally dangerous threat to birds and other wildlife? The book describes a number of factors."---Natalie Angier, New York Review of Books

"Peter Marra and Chris Santella base their case in the end on an appeal to the scientific evidence, which they set out as calmly as they can. . . . What they fear most, however, is the inaction of ordinary, decent people who have just not grasped how quickly the tapestry of the world's ecology is unravelling before our eyes."---Jeremy Mynott, Times Literary Supplement

"Marra and Santella thoughtfully examine the severe ecological damage caused by feral cats and outdoor pet cats. Highly readable. . . . Cat lovers are presented in a sympathetic light throughout, making the book worth reading no matter a reader's position on free-ranging cats." ― Publishers Weekly

"This deeply researched overview by conservation scientist Peter Marra and writer Chris Santella interlaces discussions of feline domestication and avian conservation with the science of decline and of feline spillover diseases." ― Nature

"Marra and Santella make an impassioned plea for action in this compelling report on an often overlooked threat." ― Scientific American

"Cat Wars is a work of commanding reasonableness, with plenty of facts and figures and the testimonies of experts to support its unpalatable conclusions. There are some fascinating digressions, too, including sympathetic profiles of activists on both sides of the debate in the U.S." ― The Australian

"Cat Wars has a broader, more ecological focus, documenting the global impact of cats on wildlife, both by preying on animals and by transmitting diseases. . . . Marra and Santella explore the solutions (keeping cats indoors, catios--an enclosed area outside the home--and killing strays). . . . This is an important and eye-opening book that clearly says: 'keep Tiddles a house cat.'"---Adrian Barnett, New Scientist

"Cat Wars is valuable that it calls to attention a huge problem (set of problems, really) of which many people have, hitherto, been unaware--or ignored." ― 10,000 Birds Blog

"Cat Wars, a brilliantly crafted book, describes numerous scientific studies that link bird disappearance to free-ranging feral domestic cats." ― NSTA Recommends

"TNR advocates and birders with outdoor cats are encouraged to read this book." ― Birdwatcher's Digest

"This necessary book provides the science-based case for removal of free-roaming house cats from our environment. . . . If you are unfamiliar with these important issues, you should find this book a useful starting point."---Gerry Rising, Buffalo Spree

"Cat Wars covers not only the data corroborating the problems posed by loose cats but also the people involved in the story. Marra and Santella interview researchers and activists on both sides. The readers learns of efforts to bridge differences between factions, so the massive mortality caused by cats can be effectively reduced. This is a well-written summary of a complicated problem that deserves great attention."---Joel Greenberg, BirdWatching Magazine

"In this book, the authors provide a detailed examination of the threats to global biodiversity, the environment and public health posed by free-ranging cats. They describe many scientific studies that use population modelling, feline diseases and extinctions, and they share the history of how small, but extremely vocal, special interest groups successfully prevent any action being taken to deal with the vast population explosions of feral and free-roaming cats. Cat Wars examines this complex global issue and proposes scientifically sound real-world solutions to this problem. This painstakingly researched and readable book is a must-read for all pet owners (whether you have a cat or not) and is an iron-clad argument that the best thing for local wildlife, people and the cats themselves is for cat owners to keep their pets indoors, always."---Forbes.com, a "10 Best Conservation and Environment Books of 2016",

"[Cat Wars] is a [book] we'd all benefit from reading."---Ed Kanze, Bedford Record-Review

"It took courage, good scholarship, and clearly a passion for wildlife for Marra and Santella to draft this thorough review of the cat problem. . . . The authors do a great job of gathering evidence and presenting it thoroughly and authoritatively, yet the book is entertaining and easy to read."---Jack Dumbacher, Journal of Field Ornithology

"Cat Wars makes a powerful case for the containment and management of free-ranging cats from both animal welfare and wildlife protection perspectives."---Katherine Moseby, Quarterly Review of Biology

Review

"Very few people enjoy thinking about the calamitous problem of free-roaming cats and biodiversity, and even fewer dare to talk about it openly. Marra and Santella's book is therefore doubly welcome. It's not only important reading for anyone who cares about nature. With its engaging storytelling, its calmly scientific approach, and its compassionate handling of a highly fraught issue, this is also a book that a person might actually read for pleasure."―Jonathan Franzen

"Cats, most of them unowned free-ranging cats, kill as many as four billion birds in the United States each year. What, if anything, should be done about it? Cat Wars tackles this difficult dilemma. If you are a cat lover, a bird lover, a philosopher, an ethicist, or just anyone interested in gut-wrenching dilemmas, you will find this a gripping book."―Jared Diamond, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Guns, Germs, and Steel

"Here, at last, is what native-ecosystem advocates have been waiting for―a complete, dispassionate examination of America's free-ranging cat debacle. It's all here―from the horrendous bird mortality to the cat-borne pathogens blighting wildlife and humans to the cruelty and futility of Trap-Neuter-Return. Everyone gets to speak―including the feral-cat lobby."―Ted Williams, environmental journalist

"The level-tempered approach of Cat Wars will win many advocates. Anyone interested in the broader topics of a healthy environment and healthy human society will benefit from reading this book. It's as powerful as TV ads featuring the ‘crying Indian' in the antilittering campaign of the early 1970s."―Bill Thompson III, editor of Bird Watcher's Digest

"In Cat Wars, Peter Marra and Chris Santella lay out the extraordinary (and extraordinarily devastating) toll that America's favorite pet inflicts on America's favorite birds. At a time when native bird populations are in desperate trouble, and the number of free-ranging cats has never been higher, the authors bring clear-eyed science and commonsense solutions to one of the most polarizing issues in avian conservation. This is an important book, even if the message is not a comfortable one."―Scott Weidensaul, author of Living on the Wind: Across the Hemisphere with Migratory Birds

"A great overview of a complex and often emotional challenge. Cat Wars unravels yet another layer of the global decline in biodiversity and frames the potentially drastic consequences of inaction."―Grant Sizemore, American Bird Conservancy

"Cat Wars is a brave, engaging, and careful accounting of the cats we love and the devastation they inflict on birds and other wildlife."―John M. Marzluff, author of Welcome to Subirdia: Sharing Our Neighborhoods with Wrens, Robins, Woodpeckers, and Other Wildlife

Math Games

The life of a cat isn’t all purrs and pets. In this exciting new math game, you must take on the role of a hungry alley cat fending off other stray cats in order to eat some yummy sausage! Choose your side in an adorable tug of war where the strength of your kitty is based on your ability to answer a series of math questions as fast as you can! Do you think you’re sharp enough to keep your kitty well fed by out thinking your opponent? Each correct answer helps tug the chain of sausage links a little bit closer to your hungry maw and farther away from your fuzzy opponent. You’ll also be able to customize your cat from a wide variety of colors and patterns. Whether you need to sharpen your claws on some math basics or are looking to sink your teeth into a fun math game, Cat Wars is the game for you!

While on the character select screen, use your mouse to click left or right on the green arrows and choose your desired cat, then press start. Choose which grade level --from P - 8-- that you’d like to compete at and then choose one of the four different skills from the pop-up menu. When the game starts a question will appear beneath the cats. Use your mouse to select the correct answer from the four possibilities listed below. A correct answer will move the sausage towards you. An incorrect answer will allow the opposing cat to drag the cat a little closer to their side. Good luck and have fun.

And now, when she saw him sobbing, huddled on the floor, she again woke up some kind of disgust, a desire to. Put him out the door. But. She couldn't do it. Liz went up to him and muttered through her teeth: But, I have good news for you.

A disgusting, satisfied smile. From that day on, two servants began to take Lesya somewhere, when she returned in the evening, she fell on the bed and instantly fell asleep, I tried to. Make her talk, but nothing came of it.

In those years she always aroused some kind of special respect, especially in the village. A woman in the store also joined the conversation. I realized that she knew me well, but I myself did not recognize her.

Similar news:

I still couldn't quite believe that this had happened to me. And only when I heard how they were talking between me and slapping on the bottom, calling me a good chick, I believed that it had finally happened, and burst into. Tears with relief. I cried with joy, soundlessly, shaking with a feeling of relief throughout my body.
