Sunday Night Games

Sometimes we stumble across a gem that is worth exploring further...
Here is a great site (suitable for PC - as it needs Flash to run) that allows students to practice a range of basic skills in the following areas:
* addition
* subtraction
* multiplication
* division
* order of operations
 
http://www.mathsonline.com.au/games/speed_skills
 
Students have one minute to answer as many questions as possible and can complete the level as many times as they like. There are four levels, with an increasing range of basic skills available in each level. Questions become harder as students select higher levels.
These activities allow students to implement strategies they have been learning, as well as develop their automaticity across all basic facts.
Students can log in as a guest and make their own graph to track their scores over time.
This is a part of a wider maths tutorial website that is a user pays system, however, this game is free.
 
 
Give it a try and let us know what you (and your students!) think!!!
