Math-Related Websites

Thanks to these sites, ramping up their math skills is just a few clicks away.

 

Funbrain.com

Target Age: Grade school

Check out the Math Arcade on FunBrain.com for a variety of quick games where your child can choose the level. If she's a soccer fan, have her try the Soccer Shootout. For budding baseball players, play ball with numbers in the Math Baseball game. There's a whole list of games to try beyond sports.

Math-play.com

Target Age: Middle school

"I'll take Math Factors for 100, please." So begins a game of Factors and Multiples on Math-Play.com's Middle School Math Games section. Players get to choose their names and teams to start playing. Other games include Integers Jeopardy!, Walk the Plank, Place Value Millionaire and more quiz-type fun that will keep your kids' math skills sharp.

Mathplanet.com

Target Age: High school

To help your high schooler hone his or her math skills, review MathPlanet.com. There are no games on this site. Instead, your child selects an area of focus from the column on the right-hand side of the screen. He or she can choose subjects like algebra, algebra II and geometry. Then, select the topic where you need more help. The web page walks you through the basics, gives the user examples and then includes a video explaining each concept.
