0 Sumdog Math Games! The Hottest Web 2.0 Site! Kids are Loving This!

Students at both my school (and other schools in our district) are wild about Sumdog!

Sumdog has free math games which may be played at both home and school.  Sumdog's math games cover over 120 numeracy topics (grades 1st - 8th) which are spread across 10 levels of increasing difficulty. Click here to view the various topics and levels.. Not only are students finding these games very engaging, they are also developing their mental math skills.

Sumdog also has a free teacher portal where educators may find lesson plans, teacher reference documents as well as student handouts. Additionally, it has step by step tutorials for common task to assist you...How cool is that!
