Great games can be a great way of reinforcing maths for young learners. Interactive games introduce excitment and competition into the learning mix which can particularly suit some boys who are resistant to other learning (or teaching) methods.
The games must be easy to understand and play without long explanations or pages of rules - simple games can be just as exciting as more complicated ones as long as they are well designed.
Our maths games are designed to be both simple to understand and quick to play. They are suitable for both school pupils and home-educated children and are designed to be played by individual players learning or revising maths. The games are primarily based on answering questions either using the keyboard or multiple choice - this is done in a variety of ways in the different games.
All our games are available online and are free to use with all our topics - that is well over 17,000 question / answer pairs that are at the core of any reception maths course. Our games are accompanied by maths lessons and tests to provide a vital free resource for maths learners with limited (or no) budget. The details for each game are given on their own pages.
Click on the name of a game to go to that game page with the topic you have selected. On the game page there are instructions on how to play the game in addition to a chance to change the topic you want to play with. All our reception maths games are quick to play and easy to understand. You need to have seen the maths you are going to play with before you play the games, either at school or using our own reception lessons.
We intend to develop many more games for Free Maths Games - if you would like to suggest a game, please use the contact page to let us know your ideas.
