  Math Playground is an educational site that will surely give your brain a workout!    
Math Playground is a popular learning site filled with math games, logic puzzles, step-by-step instructional videos, math practice, and a variety of problem solving activities. A favorite of parents and teachers, Math Playground provides a very safe place for kids to learn and explore math concepts online at their own pace.

  Responsible Advertising  
  Math Playground is supported by advertisers so we can bring great educational content to children at no cost to schools or parents. Our ads are reviewed by Math Playground before appearing on the site and we only accept high quality ads representing family-friendly brands. If you ever see an ad that seems out of place on Math Playground, please contact us as soon as possible. Note the name of the advertiser, the product, and the url of the ad's landing page. We will ban the advertiser immediately and take any other necessary action.  

One thing that truly sets Math Playground apart from other sites for kids is the complete absence of advertising INSIDE our games. Many sites created for children embed games from outside sources that display inappropriate ads before the game is shown. Publishers using embedded games have no control at all over the ads they show to children. This is very irresponsible and I give you my word that Math Playground will NEVER engage in that practice. Instead, we pay game developers expensive licensing fees that allow us to show ad-free versions of popular games. We believe this is best for our young visitors.

Family-friendly companies occasionally seek permission from Math Playground to run video ad campaigns for children's toys and movies. These videos are shown while problem solving games are loading. The main differences between these video ads and the ones on other sites are quality and publisher control. Math Playground previews the video ads and allows only those campaigns that are exceptionally safe for children to view.

Another serious problem with embedded games on children's sites is the presence of one or more links leading children directly to the original game portal. It is very easy to click on these links because they often appear to be part of the game. These game portals are most definitely NOT for children. For that reason, Math Playground will NEVER show games originating from these websites. We think the practice of embedding games from gaming portals is not at all in the best interest of the children who visit Math Playground.
  Meet the Publisher  
  colleen_king 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.
