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 such as NCTM and ISTE.
Please email me directly with any questions, comments, or requests you may have.
I read every message and do my best to respond promptly.
From Our Classroom to Yours
Millions of students around the world are playing our math games and discovering new ways to visualize math concepts.
But did you know that Math Playground began nearly 20 years ago in a single classroom with only 8 students?
Many of the math games on Math Playground were first built with manipulatives, classroom supplies, and a good deal of imagination.
Our students asked to play these games at home and that's how Math Playground came to be.
We want our students to experience the fun and excitement of mathematical discoveries wherever they go!
Teacher Created, Classroom Tested
Many of the math games and activities on Math Playground were developed by veteran, K-8 educators.
One of our most successful math projects is Thinking Blocks. In 2000, we began laying the groundwork for a word problem manipulative.
We were able to guide children from simple multiplication stories to challenging multi-step word problems within weeks.
A few years later, Thinking Blocks was published and now millions of children worldwide are modeling their word problems.
Mobile Math Games
Did you know that many of our games can be played on any mobile device with wi-fi?
We currently have 150+ games and we'll be adding more throughout the coming year.
In addition to math games, our mobile site contains logic puzzles that provide a secondary level of support for mathematical learning.
These games emphasize spatial reasoning, logical thinking, problem solving, trial and error, perseverance, and more.
Visit our math video collection to brush up on a wide range of math concepts, from place value and regrouping to geometry and algebra.
