Did you know that Math Playground began nearly 20 years ago in an after school math club? My students loved learning with math games and wanted to keep playing at home. That's how Math Playground came to be. Now children everywhere can explore multiplication, fractions, geometry and more with our fun and unique math games.

Common Core Math Standards

Finding activities aligned to Common Core Math Standards can be a very time consuming task. To make this a bit easier for you, we've organized Math Playground's learning games around the standards for grades 1 to 6. Whenever possible, we've attempted to cross-reference our game pages with the Common Core objectives they meet. These references can be found beneath each game or activity.
