Make Learning Math A Game

Children like to play games. Many adults also like to play games. So why not use this information to help your students, whatever their age, become better at learning math?

I was reading an interesting article about a local girl who has become the national champion for three years in a row at playing a math game called “First In Math”.

You can read the article here:

Philadelphia girl makes math a game – and excels

Considering that she is currently a sixth grader, it’s amazing to see the types of problems she’s able to solve.

Games can be fun and challenging and all the while, they help your child learn math more easily!

I hope you enjoyed the article and that it gave you some ideas on having your own math learner playing some good educational games.

Have a great day!

Help Your Child Learn Math With Fun Games

www.schoolfreeware.com TuxMath is also know as Tux of Math Command. It is a free program and can be downloaded at alioth.debian.org Or tux4kids.alioth.debian.org TuxMath runs on Windows, Mac OS X, Unix and Linux. There are updates that come regularly, so check back with the site often for the new program. Also, the program is open source with the code available for free download. So, all of the game programmers can take a look at the code and see how the game is programmed. There are two games in TuxMath the first is comet zap (missile command) and the other is Factoroids (Asteroids). The game play on comet zap is well done with good graphics, sound effects and music. Factoroids can be a bit frustrating at times because it can be hard to dodge the asteroids, type the answers and fire the laser without being destroyed. The Math Command Training Academy has levels broken down in a way that teachers can find a level that closely matches their existing math lesson plans.

 
What do you think? Looks like fun, right?

Using Technology To Learn Math

I really like technology! Most children I know also like technology. So it only makes sense that we parents and instructors should learn to use technology to help our children learn math, right?

As I was reading through some news lately, I found this article about how an East Brunswick school in Northern New Jersey is using technology (as well as some good old fashioned board games) to help students learn the different topics taught in school – one of them being math.

You can read the article here: Embracing Technology in the Classroom

At Mathnasium of Cherry Hill, we like to utilize many different approaches to help our students learn math. We’ve even had an event where the students got together and played “angry birds”!

So how about you? Do you use technology to help your children learn things?

If so, would you mind posting some of your ideas here for others to see?

Thanks!

Have a great day!
