Placing Numbers on a Number Line

This is a new version and is also available as an ipad app. You can play the old version here.

Drag the flag to the correct position on a number line. Lots of choice over level, including whole numbers, negative number and decimals. Can be used to teach place value, approximation skills, and reading varying scales.

Choose one type of number line or for more of a challenge you can select several. Work quickly to get more time, build your score and climb up the leaderboard.

Reading Scales - Capacity Word Problems

Read the scales on the measuring cylinder and answer word problems involving addition and subtraction. Play against the clock for points.

Sorting 2D shapes on a Venn diagram

Sort a variety of 2D shapes on a Venn diagram. Sort by one or two conditions. Sort triangles - scalene, equilateral and isosceles. Sort quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, heptagons and octagons, as well as parallelograms, rhombus, kites and trapeziums. Also sort according to a shapes properties such as acute, obtuse, reflex or right angles and symmetry or whether it is a regular shape.

**2nd May 2013 - I have updated this game as somebody has rightly pointed out to me that equilateral triangles are also isosceles. My apologies for the error.**

VIEW
Sequences

Find the correct number in a sequence. Lots of choice over level, count forwards or back, count in whole numbers, multiples of 10, multiples of 100, decimals and fractions.

VIEW
Sorting 3D Shapes on a Venn Diagram

Use a Venn diagram to sort a variety of 3D shapes according to their properties, including: whether they are pyramids or prisms, the number of faces, edges and vertices and whether they have a curved surface.

VIEW
Balancing scales - convert between g and kg

The scale is loaded with between 1 and 4 weights. The user then has to balance the scales, converting between g and kg in the process. There is a great deal of control over the level.

A great starter to explore addition, subtraction / difference and partitioning as well as the relationship between grams and kilograms. Levels include converting whole kg to g (and vice versa), converting fractions of kg (eg 1/4kg = 250g) and weights in kg to 1 and 2 decimal places.

VIEW
Bar Charts

Interpret data using bar charts. A number of different levels available.

VIEW
Balancing Calculations

Find the missing number to balance the calculations. An excellent tool for reinforcing an understanding of the role of the equals sign. Choose one objective, or many. You can choose all the objectives for a single year group (or multiple year groups). You can also choose to balance between different types of calculations (eg subtraction and division)

VIEW
Division by chunking down (repeated subtraction)

Use repeated subtraction (represented on a number line) to solve division problems.

VIEW

Read the time on either an analogue or digital clock and then answer a word problem involving adding a given time. Find the correct time on an anologue or digital clock. Lots of choice of level, including: adding 1 hour, multiples of 5, or 10 minutes or adding multiples of a quarter of an hour.

** updated May 2013 to include a scoreboard**

VIEW
Shape Sequences

Identify and continue sequences involving shape, colour and numbers.

VIEW
Difference using an unmarked number line

Find the difference between two numbers by counting on from the smaller number to the larger number. Children must add the fewest numbers possible, so are encouraged to develop more efficient mental methods. The addition is also shown as jumps on a number line.

Levels include counting up to 10, 20, 50 or 100, finding the difference between 2-digit numbers, 3-digit numbers and decimals.

VIEW
Sorting numbers on a Venn diagram

Sort numbers on a Venn diagram. Sort according to one or two properties, including: odd, even, multiples, square numbers, prime numbers, triangular numbers, numbers less than 30 or more than 50.

This game is also available as a free iPad app.

VIEW
Number Facts Beat The Clock

Score as many points as you can before the time runs out. A number of levels including addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and matching fractions and decimals.

VIEW
Sorting 2D shapes on a Carroll diagram

Sort a variety of 2d shapes on a Carroll diagram. Sort by one or two conditions. Sort triangles - scalene, equilateral and isosceles. Sort quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, heptagons and octagons, as well as parallelograms, rhombus, kites and trapeziums. Also sort according to a shapes properties such as acute, obtuse, reflex or right angles and symmetry or whether it is a regular shape.

**2nd May 2013 - I have updated this game as somebody has rightly pointed out to me that equilateral triangles are also isosceles. My apologies for the error.**

VIEW
Different ways to pay

Find different ways to make the same amount of money. Drag the coins into the till to make a given amount. Includes a choice of international currencies.

VIEW
Division by chunking up (repeated addition)

Use repeated addition (represented on a number line) to solve division problems.

VIEW
Fewest Coins

Make a given total using the fewest coins possible.

VIEW
Representing Multiplication - arrays and number lines

Represents multiplication using an array and by jumping on a number line. Great for developing an understanding of multiplication by partitioning.

VIEW
Telling the Time

Read the time on an analogue clock. Lots of choice over levels, including: reading time to the nearest hour, half hour, quarter hour, five minutes or minute. Options include using a 24 hour clock and seeing how many correct answers you can get in a given time.
