This archived site from the University of Cambridge presents downloadable multimedia explorations of how math relates to real life issues such as nutrition, disease, vaccinations, and the economics of health. The math topics covered include percentages, graphs, probability, equations, contingency tables, tree diagrams and much more!

When you get to the site you’ll see a description of what’s provided on the site. Click on the links under the title “Multi-Media Packs” to get to the engaging math activities that answer questions such as: 

  • Is eating bacon sandwiches bad for you (or are the statistics misleading)?
  • How do mathematical models make predictions about epidemics?
  • What are the odds that you test positive for something and the test is wrong?

Explore these and other health-related questions from a mathematical perspective.

You can also do an in-depth study of “Babylonian Maths” that hone skills in number and place value, multiplication, division, inverses, shape, and symmetry.

If you still want more, click over to the “Cross-Curricular Resources” section to find correlations between mathematics and art, geography, history, music, science, sports and more. Some of the videos (VCs) in this section don’t work any more, but there are plenty of good suggested activities to stimulate learning over a wide variety of subjects.

Test your Multiplication Tables and Basic Math (Pre-Algebra) skills and earn food for the hungry!

Scroll down to Math and choose from: 

  • Multiplication Table
  • Basic Math – Algebra

Click on your choice to get to the quiz. FreeRice automatically adjusts to your level of ability as you take each quiz. It starts by giving you math equations at different levels of difficulty and then, based on how you do, assigns you an approximate starting level. You then determine a more exact level for yourself as you play. When you get an math problem wrong, you go to an easier level. When you get three problems in a row right, you go to a harder level. This one-to-three ratio keeps you challenged to encourage learning.

You can set your own level and you can even have the site remember your total from the last time you were there if you create an account.

And, with every right answer, you donate ten grains of rice through the UN World Food Program to help end hunger. This is made possible by the sponsors who advertise on this site.

The site has expanded to include quizzes in other subjects: 

  • English
  • Geography
  • Humanities
  • Language Learning
  • Science
  • And more

If you have more questions, check out the About section. This is a fun and ingenious idea that will motivate kids to practice math while helping others.
