I am so glad to have found Tara at The Elementary Math Maniac! Tara has given me tons of great ideas for math-if you love teaching math like me or if you simply have to teach math and are looking for new ideas hop on over and check out Tara’s blog! 🙂
Tara introduced me to the free app: Math Slide and my students love it! They love it for several reasons but the number one reason has to be that they get to play against each other. Even in the free app (there are a couple of paid versions as well) up to 4 players can play at once which is awesome!
Students race against each other practicing a variety of skills. There are several versions of this game including: addition/subtraction, place value, tens/ones, hundreds/tens/ones, multiplication/division, ect.
The screenshots from this post come from the addition/subtraction game. If you want to see other versions of this application click the words above and then once you are in your new window click “view more by this developer” to see the complete list.
