This engaging online game from math-play.com works well as a whole class "guys vs. girls" competition or as a partner activity.  If teams answer correctly, they are given the chance to "shoot the ball."  It is more challenging than it looks!  If both teams are tied at the end, there is a sudden death shoot off.  My Algebra Intervention class last year (which was primarily at-risk students), BEGGED for this game.  I do recommend structuring the game to increase individual accountability.  When it was girls' turn, I gave pairs or trios adequate time to work on the problems before calling on a team at random.  Then one of the team members gets to come up to the interactive white board to "shoot the ball."

This online interactive game from math-play.com is modeled after the television game show "Who Wants to Be A Millionaire" and provides high-quality graphics and sound that create an exciting game show atmosphere in your math class.  I like to create a friendly competition between different hours (or sections) of my Algebra class to see who can earn the most money.  The winning class earns bragging rights as well as "half off" of their homework assignment.  To increase student engagement and accountability, I have students work in pairs or trios to answer questions.  After a question from the game is posed, I give students adequate time to work and discuss the equation before choosing a team at random.  Since teams never know when they will be chosen, all students stay engaged in the activity.  Plus, they want to win that half off homework night! :-)

Math Apps

by April McNeill

As a mother of a child with special needs I know how motivating computer apps can be.  A lot of special education students today have access to ipads either at home or at school and I think these apps are a fun way to get them interested in math.

Prodigy Math Game

by Alex McCune

The third grader I nanny showed me this game. He said his teacher introduced it to him as a "free time activity". This math game is awesome; especially for young boys. They are able to create a login and character, with whom they fight challenges against their enemies. These challenges consist of math problems of all kinds, which get harder as the student progresses through the game. The boys I watch loved it. It reminded them of Pokemon. It also had a great variety of math problems. Overall, a great resource!!
