Should you decide to purchase a subscription to the program, you’ll be able to access additional tools to save games, track your student’s progress, etc.

As explained at the website, instead of force-feeding dry math content with anachronistic textbooks, MangaHigh entices networked students to learn mathematical concepts as part of game-play.

When you get to the site, you’ll see the menu of 18 sample games designed to engage students such as:

*Flower Power – Grow flowers and harvest them to make money. The average 7-minute game requires players to put more than 100 fractions, percentages and decimals in order of size, both positive and negative.

*Pyramid Panic – Students must master the full spectrum of geometry skills from area of a square, through Pythagoras to Sine, Cosine and Tangent in order to win this game.

*Save Our Dumb Planet – Use missiles to shoot down meteors on a collision course with Earth. A team of dumb scientists are on hand to suggest possible trajectories. Draw lines using equations, recognize the equations of simple lines and common curves, draw simple quadratic curves, and test to see if a point is on a line.  

*PEDMAS Blaster – Robots have run amok and need to be destroyed. Use your order-of-operations code-cracking abilities (including adding and subtracting whole numbers, times tables up to 10 x 10, and using powers and roots) to close these robo-rebels down.

Click on any one to read the instructions and begin the game. Things move quickly – so be prepared to be on your toes!

As explained at the site, the idea here is “to bring out the playful side of math while ensuring that students get the essential skills to master this important subject.” It’s great for remedial work too.

Recommended Website:

Visual Fractions

Age Range: 9-14 (approximately, with parental supervision)

This website offers a free tutorial for learning about fractions. Through the use of interactive exercises and visual aids (like number lines and circle graphs), students can learn how to:

  • Identify fractions
  • Rename fractions
  • Compare fractions
  • Add, subtract, multiply and divide fractions

The concepts are demonstrated through the visual images and explained in text format. Then, the student can practice their understanding with an interactive drill session. There are even free, printable worksheets to practice fractions offline.

The creators suggest that the student answer 10 in-a-row correctly before moving on to the next concept. They also suggest that the best way to use the site is to progress in the order displayed – as mastery of one concept leads to understanding the next.

This site presents a good mix of lessons with visual demonstrations, animated manipulatives for building and understanding concepts, interactive drills to do online, and follow-up worksheets for offline reinforcement.

You’ll also find links to some animated math “movies” and math tutorials (on a YouTube channel with random ads) that provide instruction in Whole Numbers, Decimals, Fractions, Ratio and Proportion, Percent, Integers, Order of Operations, Algebra, and Geometry designed for grades 3-6.
