Matific's 2nd Grade math games are arranged in four categories: Operations and Algebraic Thinking, Number and Operations in Base Ten, Measurement and Data, and Geometry. The first two are the most comprehensive, with the most games and practice sheets.

Go for these more inquiry-based games, rather than those with a simple right-or-wrong answer, and explore possible strategies and solutions as a class.

However, you might also try having students explore a topic on the site before you teach. The practice sheets can work as straightforward assessments or extra practice. But you're best off using the games to get kids thinking more flexibly. As students work through the program, use their profiles to gauge progress.
