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 have been working with My eCoach since 1999. The coaching I received from them helped me shape my teaching and pedagogy. I have been incorporating technology into my curriculum ever since. I have seen my struggling students excel, their self-esteem elevated building their pride and self-confidence."
