A fun way to help children learn their multiplication tables. Choose which times tables to practise and then try and pop all the bubbles before your time is up. Try and make the target number (at the top) by shooting a multiplication bubble. So if your target is 10, and you have the x2 bubble, you will need to hit 5, as 5 x 2 = 10.
This new version can be played directly in your browser on any computer or tablet.
23/11/17 - new version added. This version is tablet friendly and can be played directly on any device.
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.
Updated December 2017 - this is a new version that will work on a tablet or computer.
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.
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.
This new version will work on any tablet or computer.
A great way to practise number bonds and mental addition. Levels include: number bonds to 10, 20, 50 and 100 as well as addition pairs with a total of up to 20, 50 or 100. Look at the target at the top of the screen and then aim your bubble to make that target.
As a teacher I know how important it is that children know their number bonds (pairs of numbers that add up to 10, 20, 50 or 100), and can add quickly mentally. Repetition is essential in learning number bonds. This game is designed to make the process fun.
Children have to aim their bubble to make a given sum. As they progress the levels get harder; they have less time, or less bubbles to shoot. Each correct answer is accompanied by an image to reinforce the number bond they have found.
This game will work directly in the browser of any device.
