There are some really fun and interesting Flash powered maths games on this US site. Unfortunately, a lot of advertising make it unsuitable for independent use. The site is probably best used for whole class or supervised group work.

Super Maths World April 23, 2008

Posted by Gareth in : Maths/Numeracy , 8comments

This is a really fun site which features a large selection of maths questions presented in a “video game” style. Many of the activities could be used with older Key Stage 2 students but teachers would have to direct them to the appropriate areas of the site (as some of the topics aren’t on the primary syllabus).
