A Whole Stack of Maths Educational Games!!

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 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 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 to show what (eg) 3.1 means (ie 3 plus 0.1) 

A reading/writing number place value game from 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.
