Learning List has reviewed TeachMe’s Math Games. This is a supplemental online product that supports math instruction for grades PK-8. Instruction uses an online suite of math games and apps to engage students using interactive, play-based learning experiences. Games address the Common Core State Standards Mathematics (CCSSM) content standards at each grade level. The CCSSM Mathematical Process Standards are not taught.
Math Games organizes content at each grade level by math skills (e.g., comparison, fractions) and CCSSM content standards. Instruction is presented in games that provide corrective feedback and progress through a set of related skills. Many games are text-based and require students to read instructions, word problems, and written answers, which may present challenges for emerging readers, struggling readers, and English language learners. A robotic audio reader is provided.
Learning List’s reviewers found Math Games to be a valuable resource in supporting RtI students, noting that teachers may create customized lessons to improve fluency and to address basic concepts (e.g., open or closed shapes) that build understanding of more rigorous content. Math Games are available at no cost at www.mathgames.com
TeachMe’s games and apps are guided by the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics and pay careful attention to regional curriculum all over the world. Math Games uses a customized approach to learning and games change based on who is playing, their mastery of skills and their experiences.
