Math Software

These games do a great job of providing a fun twist to learning basic math skills. Developed by a group of elementary math teachers, Gold Medal Math allows students to test their core math skills in addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division while trying to win Olympic gold medals in such sports as snowboarding, downhill skiing, long jump, diving, etc.; while Soccer Math works to test these basic skills as well as more advanced skills such as place value, fractions, decimals, percents, measurements, greatest common factors, and least common multiples. In Gold Medal Math, students compete in their sport of choice and have one minute to answer correctly as many questions as possible in any of the four skills (or a mix of all four) at varying levels of difficulty. The faster (accuracy also counts!) students answer their questions, the better they place in their sport and are more likely to win a medal. In Soccer Math, students pick one the math skills and play a game of soccer. Correct answers will advance your team towards the goal while incorrect answers will advance the opposing team towards their goal. All in all, these software programs are an entertaining way for students of all ages to sharpen their math skills and build confidence in their math abilities.
