Arithmetic problems descend from the top of the screen, as you solve them you score points. The longer you play, the harder the problems get and the more points they're worth. There are seven sub-games; each individual operation can be practiced separately, or you can practice addition and subtraction together, or multiplication and division together, or all four operations at once. Have fun!<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/DrMikesMathGamesForKids/~4/FNHj7X_pZvs" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Sun, 29 Nov 2015 08:29:02 -0600http://www.dr-mikes-math-games-for-kids.com/arith-attack.htmlNine Tile Puzzle

<img src="http://www.dr-mikes-math-games-for-kids.com/linkimgs/YourNameInTau.png" border="0" align="left" alt="" title="" />Which is the "real" circle constant, pi or tau? Perhaps you'd like to Find your name in the base 27 digits of tau? A long long time ago I made a search engine for finding your name in pi. However, since then, there's been a movement claiming that math would be better if we used 2 times pi, or tau, instead. Whichever side of that debate you fall on, you can search for your name in tau and see how soon it appears!<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/DrMikesMathGamesForKids/~4/TCLR3NOCCm0" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Sun, 29 Mar 2015 07:34:44 -0500http://www.dr-mikes-math-games-for-kids.com/your-name-in-tau.htmlSpace Birthday

<img src="http://www.dr-mikes-math-games-for-kids.com/linkimgs/SpaceBirthday-rgb-200.png" border="0" align="left" alt="" title="" />With the Space Birthday Calculator you can find out how many Jupiter years old you are or when your next Venus birthday is. Enter your birthday (and your friends' birthdays), and see how close you are to turning 21 in Mars years. Birthday information is stored on your local computer (as a 'cookie') so you don't need to enter the information over and over again each time you visit. The Space Birthday page also shows upcoming birthdays for a collection of famous scientists and celebrities. Why not organize a big space birthday party?<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/DrMikesMathGamesForKids/~4/1n0IWXf0LIE" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Sun, 22 Feb 2015 08:56:26 -0600http://www.dr-mikes-math-games-for-kids.com/space-birthday.htmlGuess My Number

<img src="http://www.dr-mikes-math-games-for-kids.com/linkimgs/GuessMyNumber.png" border="0" align="left" alt="" title="" />Can you Guess My Number? I've thought of a number. You have to guess it. I'll tell you if your guess is too big or two small. Sounds easy? What if I tell you that, in the medium, hard and insane versions of this game, my answers are sometimes wrong? That I might say your guess is too small, when it's actually too big? Or that it's too big, when it's actually 100% correct? You'll be amazed at how challenging the Number Guessing Game becomes with just a little bit of uncertainty about my answers!<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/DrMikesMathGamesForKids/~4/JiraUgCarp4" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Mon, 08 Dec 2014 07:11:00 -0600http://www.dr-mikes-math-games-for-kids.com/guess-my-number.htmlThe UPS Game

<img src="http://www.dr-mikes-math-games-for-kids.com/linkimgs/UPS-200px.png" border="0" align="left" alt="" title="" />The UPS Game has a worksheet kids can customize with their friends' names. Once they've done that, the goal is to find a route that loops from the UPS office to each of their friends' houses in turn, before finally returning to the starting point. That's not too hard in itself - the challenge is to make the route as short as possible! Once the kids have finished that, this game comes with a bonus challenge - find a site for the grocery store that minimizes the total distance to each of the houses. That makes UPS Game two games in one!<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/DrMikesMathGamesForKids/~4/dmLB-O7x5P0" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Fri, 28 Nov 2014 22:10:48 -0600http://www.dr-mikes-math-games-for-kids.com/ups-game.htmlAlice Oglesby's Cross-Number Puzzle

How is that possible? Once you've worked out each sum on a calculator, you turn your calculator upside down, and each number becomes a letter. You can download and print Alice's puzzle, solve it, and then make your own upside-down calculator cross-number puzzle with the help of the long lists of calculator words linked from the puzzle page.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/DrMikesMathGamesForKids/~4/_Mwy1FhQEGo" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Mon, 13 Oct 2014 08:20:09 -0500http://www.dr-mikes-math-games-for-kids.com/alices-cross-number-puzzle.htmlTizits - Impossible Figures

<img src="http://www.dr-mikes-math-games-for-kids.com/linkimgs/DinosaurDiscovery-200px.jpg" border="0" align="left" alt="" title="" />Not Math, But Awesome: My local museum had an exhibition recently, called Dinosaur Discovery - Lost Secrets of the Cretaceous. As part of the exhibition, they had prepared a special smartphone app (available for Android or iOS). You'd load the app, point your phone at some special barcodes, and you'd suddenly see a three-dimensional dinosaur pop out! On my own Dinosaur Discovery page you can read more about the exhibition, and also find links to download your own dinosaur barcodes, and the app you'll need to use them. I also made a short Dinosaur Discovery Video that you might like to see!<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/DrMikesMathGamesForKids/~4/JUP6fmnhUdg" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Thu, 17 Jul 2014 19:54:53 -0500http://www.dr-mikes-math-games-for-kids.com/dinosaur-discovery.htmlApril Fools Date Calculator

It works like the Easter Date Worksheet - write the year in a box in the worksheet, copy numbers along arrows, and the date of April Fools appears at the end! Ok, in all seriousness - the real educational value in this worksheet - besides arithmetic practice - is to make kids wonder how on earth the worksheet manages to get the right date for April Fool's Day every time.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/DrMikesMathGamesForKids/~4/9PZBZI0_dBg" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Sun, 30 Mar 2014 21:25:00 -0500http://www.dr-mikes-math-games-for-kids.com/april-fools-date-calculator.htmlDots And Boxes

<img src="http://www.dr-mikes-math-games-for-kids.com/linkimgs/PiSymbol.png" border="0" align="left" alt="" title="" />Why not Find Your Name In Pi? When we write pi=3.14159.., we use our normal ten different digits, which we call 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9. I converted pi to base 27, and called the digits <space>, A, B, C, ..., Z. That way, the digits of pi become a long list of letters. I've got 31 million base 27 digits, I've put them on my webserver, and I've made a search box for you to use!

<img src="http://www.dr-mikes-math-games-for-kids.com/linkimgs/200px-tritiling.png" border="0" align="left" alt="" title="" />This page has a set of Triangular Graph Paper sheets for you to download and print. The sizes of the triangles range from 1mm to 1 inch, so you'll be able to find one that suits your project. The tessellations are of equilateral triangles - the most symmetric tessellation of triangles there is. Download and print as many as you want!<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/DrMikesMathGamesForKids/~4/NdqscA6edBU" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>Fri, 17 Aug 2012 21:49:02 -0500http://www.dr-mikes-math-games-for-kids.com/triangular-graph-paper.htmlHexagonal Graph Paper
