Math Playground

Here you'll find some of the best games around for teaching basic algebra to young kids, among many other math subjects. Many of the games are categorized by grade level, and there are puzzles and word problems as well as videos that answer basic math questions, such as "What is a prime number?" and "How do you add fractions with different denominators?"

"I love that this is an easy to use site that fosters professional collaboration and improvement of teaching and learning while providing tools for educators in a one stop place. The templates are easy to use. I've been using them lately for workshops and online courses as well as for creating and updating an educator web resource list. Updating on the fly is so easy. My sites look professional and are easy to navigate. In the past I've used them to help teachers with project planning, and would love to do that again.

Barbara is extremely responsive to my needs when I've made requests. This personal touch is extremely awesome!"
