How I Use It
I tried to use this website for a sneaky treat of fun that was still meaningful. However, I was unable to find many games that had any true math or problem solving skill required. The few I did find, students glazed over and did not choose to play.
My Take
This is not a useful tool. Kids love it but there is not enough thinking or math involved to call it "math games".
