Practice Math and Feed The Hungry

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.

Learn Esperanto!

(free-esperanto-course.net/)

Age Range: 7 and up (Grades 2 and up; children with parental supervision)

 

This website offers a free, fun introduction to Esperanto – a language that was developed to help worldwide communication.

It is not spoken by any particular country or ethnic group; however, it has similarities to Latin, Germanic and Slavic words. Esperanto was deliberately designed to be simple for everyone to learn. It is highly phonetic, making it easy to read, pronounce, and spell.

It was introduced at the end of the 19th century to promote tolerance in worldwide communications as it doesn’t favor any particular people, country, or culture through its use. There are Esperanto websites, clubs, seminars, books, music and more.

Because you can learn the language quickly, kids can speak “Esperanto” around the house, as a sort of “secret language.” Sign up for the free course: it even comes with a tutor!

Some of the lessons include: 

  • Nouns
  • Verbs
  • Adjectives
  • The Alphabet
  • Salutations
  • Numbers
  • And more!

Each lesson has an explanation and then a quiz or exercise to practice what you’ve learned. This course won’t have you speaking fluent Esperanto by the end of the lessons, but it will have introduced you to the basic principles of the language.
