Reviewer Comments:

Math Playground is an excellent web site full of online math problems, math manipulatives, fact practice, and more. It has activities for grades K-8 with many options for each age level. It can be used by both teachers in the classroom and by students at home for practice activities. What is nice is that there is a video tutorial which explains how to do the different activities. There is a focus in this site on solving multi-step math problems. For example, in the "Thinking Blocks" activity, there are part-part-whole problems where students are given a color-coded visual to help them solve the word problems. They are asked to identify the parts and the whole. Overall, this seems like a great site to find supplemental math activities for students.
