A+ Math Games

Age Range: 5-18 (Grades K-12, with parental supervision)

This website contains fun, interactive games for learning basic math facts in addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and geometry.

The games include:

• Matho – This is math and bingo combined for “Matho”! Includes game board and games for addition, multiplication and division facts. When you get to the web page, you will see a game board with numbers on it. Below it are questions like “What is 8 x 5?” You do the math, and get the answer – in this case “40”. Then you click on the number 40 on the game board. As soon as you get 5 in a row – you have Matho!
• Hidden Picture – Choose your subject to get to the game board with numbers on it. Above the game board are math fact problems like “8 – 3?” You find the correct answer on the game board and click on it. If you are correct a piece of the hidden picture is revealed. Once you answer all of the questions correctly – you get to see the whole picture!
• Math Memory – Click on the type of Math Memory game you’d like to play. On the next screen, you will see 2 game boards. Both boards are covered in question marks. Click on a square on one board, and you will see a math fact like “3 + 3?” Then you click on a square on the other side to try to find the solution. The idea is to try to remember as you click from one side to the next what facts and answers lie beneath each square. Requires concentration and develops good memory skills. Once you clear both boards by finding the solution to each math fact, you win!

These games are a great way to remedy the boredom of drill and practice with basic math facts.

When you finish the games, check out the rest of the site to find flashcards and worksheets and homework help. Highly recommended!

Age Range: 11 and up (Grades 5 and up. Age/grade range varies – use parental discretion and supervision)

This website provides short instructional math videos that can be used to supplement math studies. The videos consist of a narrated lecture and animations that illustrate the concept being discussed. The videos are enabled for iPhone, iPod and iPad devices for portable, on-the-go learning.

When you get to the website you’ll see a menu of math videos that include topics such as:

• Triangular Numbers (Parts I, II & III) – Elementary explanation of triangular numbers, a general formula for the sum of an arithmetic progression, and a solution to the Recursive equation.
• Mathematical Induction (Parts I, II, & III) – Explains the Method of Mathematical Induction. Discussion of Francesco Maurolico, Pascal and John Wallis, plus Fermat’s Method of infinite descent, etc.
• Weaving Numbers – Explanation of Vedic multiplication or weaving multiplication. Includes Fibonacci’s sieve or lattice multiplication, and more.
• Dimension 2 – Explains how two numbers can describe the position of a point on a sphere, and how one can draw a picture of the Earth on a piece of paper.
• The Fourth Dimension – Mathematician Ludwig SchlĂ¤fli discusses objects in the fourth dimension.
• Complex Numbers – Mathematician Adrien Douady explains the square root of negative numbers in simple terms.
• Pi – An explanation and illustration of the most famous mathematical constant.

The narrator on some of the videos speaks in a monotone voice with an accent, so we found it necessary to really pay attention to hear and understand the lectures. Fortunately, the animated illustrations help the viewer to maintain focus.

We couldn’t find “about” information on the site, so it’s not clear who is providing the info or why. Currently, there are no advertisements on the site, and all of the videos can be accessed for free, without registration.

This is a helpful resource for supplementing the study of various math concepts.
