The Adder is here! Thanks to our collaboration with the clever people at Abertay University we are able to bring version 1 of The Adder to you. Click here to have a try. The Adder is actually 5-games-in-1 and it uses research-based methods to help develop arithmetic fluency. There is more information underneath the game.

Listed below are the educational activities and games that have been developed for the HelpingWithMath.com web site. Also listed are a number of fun math games that have been created for the BBC Schools web site. These games will be especially useful for Kindergarten through 3rd grade although they can be used by any student that wants to practice their math in a fun way.

You will also find some of the games below, along with others, listed on the multiplication games page and also on the addition and subtraction games page.

The missing operators game challenges students to identify which operator ( + , - , x , ÷) is missing from the equations. e.g. 20 ? 4 = 5

The three games below have both timed and un-timed versions and provide practice with number relationships. They are with numbers to 10 and are typically suited to students around the 1st grade level.

- 1 or 2 more than (e.g. 2 more than 5)
- 1 or 2 less than (e.g. 1 less than 9)
- 1 or 2 more or less than

This number partitions game is good for building foundation skills for addition and subtraction.

These are basic math fact games developed for HelpingWithMath.com.

The challenge is to aim the sight and fire at any of four targets - ideally at the one that shows the correct answer to the multiplication problem!

- 2 times table (2 x 1 to 2 x 12)
- 3 times table (3 x 1 to 3 x 12)
- 4 times table (4 x 1 to 4 x 12)
- 5 times table (5 x 1 to 5 x 12)
- 6 times table (6 x 1 to 6 x 12)
- 7 times table (7 x to 7 x 12)
- 8 times table (8 x 1 to 8 x 12)
- 9 times table (9 x 1 to 9 x 12)

These multiplication games require the "magnets" to be moved to make the correct answer.

- 2 times table (10 questions)
- 3 times table (10 questions)
- 4 times table (10 questions)
- 5 times table (10 questions)
- 6 times table (10 questions)
- 7 times table (10 questions)

- 6 to 9 times tables (20 questions)
- 2 to 9 times tables (20 questions)

- Match the fraction with the picture
- Fractions in numbers and in words
- Matching Equivalent Fractions
- Target Equivalent Fractions
- Fractions, Decimals, & Percentages

- Addition: Sums to 9 e.g. 4 + 3
- Addition: Sums to 19 e.g. 9 + 8
- Subtraction: Single Digits e.g. 7 - 2
- Subtraction: e.g. 17 - 8

The games below require the numbers and signs to be moved around to make the correct answer.

- Addition (to 9)
- Addition (to 19: 1 of 2)
- Addition (to 19: 2 of 2)
- Subtraction (to 9)
- Subtraction (to 19)
- Addition/ Subtraction (to 9)
- Addition/ Subtraction (to 19)
- Adding 3 Numbers (to 10 & to 20)

And this addition and subtraction game mixes up numbers and signs for a slightly different challenge

Below are a number of fun games developed by the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) and that are featured on their excellent BBC Schools web site. Some of the games use British terms and money but they are still very useful for people from other countries. Jolly Good!
