Cool Platforms and Games for Maths
There are hundreds if not thousands of maths games out there. It’s a very easy subject to create games for especially at the primary level
However, not all games are created equal and my focus is on those that provide feedback to allow your child to progress through the curriculum.
The ones I’ve listed here other ones I use at home and I think you’ll find them useful.
Khan Academy (free)
Khan Academy has been around for a long time as far as online platforms go.
It initially started as a maths platform however has grown and covers just about every topic you can think of.
Check out the link below!
(full disclosure, I got addicted to it in 2014 and have over 1 million energy points)
Mathletics was used at our school for a couple of years and is a good platform if you have the money.
You can get a free trial for 48 hours.
Not quite in the same league as Khan Academy though does allow your child to compete with other kids in maths games.
Prodigy (free with constant subscription ads!)
This is a great maths game. It’s a 2D RPG game that uses answers to maths problems to determine whether you beat a monster or not.
It tracks your children’s answers and benchmarks them against against an internal curriculum which then gives you reports on your child’s progress.
A marriage between Khan Academy’s instructional strength and Prodigy’s fun game mechanics is my idea of maths heaven!
