  II. No External Games  

Many publishers create site for children using games that are freely available on gaming portals. There are two major problems with this approach. The first issue is that publishers using embedded games have no control over the ads they show to children. The ads that are placed inside the games are not intended for young audiences and may not comply with COPPA privacy laws. Another serious problem with using embedded games on children's sites is the presence of one or more links leading children directly to the original gaming portal. It is very easy to click on these links because they often appear to be part of the game. These gaming portals are most definitely NOT for children. For those reasons, Math Playground will NEVER show games originating from gaming portals. Instead, we pay game developers expensive licensing fees that allow us to provide popular games that have no inappropriate advertising, no links to gaming portals or social media, no high score boards, and no user forums. We believe this is the safest choice for our young visitors.

  Meet the Publisher  
Hi, my name is Colleen King. I created Math Playground in 2002 for students in my classes who needed a fun way to practice math facts. Since then, Math Playground has grown to include a wide variety of math topics, from problem solving and mathematical art to real world math and thinking games. When I'm not developing new activities for Math Playground, I teach at a mathematics learning center. I enjoy sharing math strategies with other educators and have presented my work at conferences like NCTM and ISTE. Whenever I have free time, I can be found playing with my Golden Retriever pups, practicing drums with my band, or exploring New England on my bicycle.
