Here are some more good Maths Edugames.
This is great because it gives students feedback on their speed & accuracy. If they complete the activity in under a minute and get 100% correct, it also gives them a certificate with their results that they can print. This is a good way of keeping track of their results and rewarding them at the same time! A little bit of competition amongst themselves always goes a long way. It drills addition & subtraction facts to 20 and division & multiplication based on the times tables.
This game has a built in "cheat sheet" for kids who need extra help with their multiplication facts. If they don't know the answer they can use a grid system for calculating the answer. The faster they can answer though the more points they get. When the student choses to "end the mission" they are given the option to print a "printable report". Great for keeping track of their own improvements.
Part of the Arcademic Skill Builders site (a review to come) this single player game allows students to set their level of play (eg number facts from 1-20 or 10 to 20) and speed to drill addition number facts up to and including 20. At the end of the game a report of success can be printed. Students who get through all levels are able to print out trophies. One teacher has all of these on a trophy wall!
A basic looking game based on "Connect Four" and played by two players. Each player must answer maths questions (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division) to earn a piece to place on the board. Parameters: time limit, difficulty level, types of questions. At the end the teacher can review and record the scores - but making a printed copy requires a screen dump!
Another simple game/drill site is Harcourt's That's A Fact Students can drill basic number facts in the four operations. It also allows them to chose vertical or horizontal algorithms to suit individual preference. Drills are timed, although there is an untimed option. At the end it tells you which facts were not complete and which were wrong. This page can be printed (answers not given) or students could copy the algorithm and correct answer into their books!
I just found all these great Maths games. Sorry I haven't had time to get screenshots and create individual blog postings for each. Have fun.
Kids get given worksheet after worksheet by their of Dienes blocks activities to answer. Instead of doing the worksheets we do this activity from ICTgames.com on the whiteboard. They have so much more fun. It looks at place value for numbers from 9 to 9999.
This game is another useful place value tool. Students move beads onto the place value abbacus to make the given number. Very hands on learning! It is from atschool.co.uk which requires registration (and costs money!) but it does have a couple of sample activities, including this one.
My students aren't up to decimal place value yet, but I've got this stored away in favourites for when we need it. Basically it's a pull apart activity from TopicBox.net to show what (eg) 3.1 means (ie 3 plus 0.1)
A reading/writing number place value game from LearningClip.com. It doesn't have too many to solve at one time (a plus for Learning Difficulty students) but moves them on to reading and writing numbers! This website requires registration, but it's free and the website has HEAPS AND HEAPS of useful resources. More to be mentioned over time.
From the same website as the one above. Students partition numbers (eg 528 into chunks of 500, 20 and 8). Another from the site which helps with partitioning numbers in a simpler (quicker) form is Archery Bullseye other great activities on place value and partitioning from this Learning Clip can be found HERE
The following are just a list of links to maths games that are good for groups on the IWB. They do not require keyboard input to answer questions.
Maths Baseball - Addition Game that caters for different abilities in a class.
Numbers - Addition game that moves very fast! Can be downloaded or played online.
Snowball Fight - Solve subtraction problems correctly and you get to throw the snowball, make a mistake and it splatters right on the screen!
Egg Static Drop - Multiplication Game where you have to catch eggs for multiples of a chosen number.
Pizza Pizzazz - Solve a multiplication question and deliver a pizza to the table with the number that matches the answer.
Disco Dino - Another mutliplication solving game, but at the end you get to create a dinosaur dance!
Fish - Similar to Pizza & Disco but these fish are fast!
Splat Square is a simple 100's chart but with sound effects and colours. Play games like "What Number Comes Before?" Other ways of intergrating the grid into lessons can be found here and here.
Gamebone is another fun way of using a 100s chart to learn.
