I am always on the lookout for more fun free computer games that provide excellent math practice. I recently found a new treasure!
This game is called Math Madness. It has a basketball theme and its customization options make it a great game for grades 1-5. Students can work on addition, subtraction or multiplication and can choose easy or hard levels. Check this out!
|The home screen allows you (or your students) to choose the skill and the level|
|Here is addition set to easy. Students move the mouse left and right until they are "shooting" from the correct number. A simple mouse click releases the ball.|
|Addition on hard. This is a great way to work on fluency with double digit addition.|
|Subtraction on easy|
|Subtraction on hard|
|If your students are working on multiplication facts, choosing easy multiplication is the right choice! They are all missing factor problems so your students are really thinking about division!|
|I love how the hard level of multiplication encourages estimation and thinking about extending the multiplication facts.|
Can you see your students using this game?
