Teaching with Math Games
Welcome to Math Playground!
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 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.
Puzzle Playground is a new game site from the publishers of Math Playground. You'll find strategy games like Chess and Sink the Ships, thinking puzzles such as Rhomb and XLOX, and many classic favorites like Reversi, Snake, and Four in a Row. For the student who has already "given their brain a workout", Puzzle Playground has action and skill games, too!
Our latest playground meets all current COPPA-compliant and kidSAFE standards. We carefully review each game and accept only those that meet our high standards. Please consider adding Puzzle Playground
to your school's list of safe sites for kids.
