Hi!  It’s Monday, January 23, 2012 and time for Math at ClickSchooling!

Recommended Website:
10 Ticks Math Games

Age Range: 6-13 (about grades 1-8, with parental supervision)

I usually don’t get caught up in the free math games that I review, but this site’s math activities were an exception. I can’t believe I spent almost an hour selecting map coordinates to find buried treasure, determining angle trajectories to obliterate alien spacecraft, and testing my speed at selecting squares and powers of two among arcade mallard ducks. Pitiful. (Just kidding.)  :)

This United Kingdom website offers a fee-based online math program, but it provides lots of free sample math and logic games that give kids practice in addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, algebra, and more. Plus, there are a variety of traditional games that test logic skills too.

When you get to the site, you’ll see a menu icon of featured games such as “PacAlgebra” (kinda like Pac Man) and below it an extensive A-to-Z menu that includes:

  • Alien Angles (Curses, foiled again!)
  • Backgammon (Learn to play!)
  • Bat Collector (I dare you!) 
  • Chess (Can you beat Artificial Intelligence?)
  • Draw Poker (Test probability skills!)
  • Mallard Maths – (So silly and so fun!)
  • 0X0 Algebra & Math (aka Tic-Tac-Toe using word problems)
  • Rat Splat (Random math quizzes.)
  • And many more!

Click on a game of choice and a new screen opens. Look for the “Instructions” usually located (although hard to see) in a frame near the bottom of the game screen. Then, let the games begin!  Bookmark this site to return often.
