Online Math Games – Free and for Kids

Online Math Games – Free and for Kids.

You’ll find really fun games here for various levels of basic operations (+,-,/,*) and the ability to report scores to the teacher.  There is a pacman like mixed operation game.  The player has to eat a question mark that gives the answer to which ‘ghost’ he might destroy.  Hey, if people weren’t watching me, I’d still be playing. 🙂

Illuminations: Dynamic Paper

Illuminations: Dynamic Paper.

“Use “Dynamic Paper” to create number lines, grids, tessellations, shapes, spinners, nets, and more. This web resource is an invaluable tool for math educators. The objects that are created can be exported as PDF files to be used in worksheets or as Jpeg images for use in other web applications or programs. The site can certainly save a lot of time if you have been trying to create diagrams using word processing applications!”
