Some quality educational game portals that let math students play free games are Fun Brain, Math Libs and Multiplication.com; the independent games are a fun way for learners to learn the basics and practice skills required to move to the next level. Multiplication.com was created by an educator who successfully came up with a method for teaching students basics of math and times tables in a short period of time using pictures and stories.
The site reflects the founder's methods and offers games that teach and reinforce skills for multiplication, division, subtraction and addition. One multi-player game, "Road Rally," lets players join games in progress or create a new game for others to join. The game asks players different multiplication questions and the individuals car moves faster or slower depending on the answer.
Math Libs is a great game for 3rd and 4th graders that asks them to fill in a series of names that are in turn used in modules covering lessons taught in each grade. Questions are accompanied by easy to understand visual explanations and graphs when explaining the correct answer.
Fun Brain lets students play 25 free math games. The interactive section of the educational site arranges its games on a game board, and a player's game piece is moved to different squares where a new game must be mastered before going forward.
