Practice makes perfect, and math proficiency at all levels definitely takes practice. Whether students are working on basic addition and subtraction or advanced algebra and geometry concepts, these online interactive math games work as a fun way to practice important skills. The best part? They’re all available for free on the web!

While these interactive math games absolutely work with distance learning, we also love playing them on an interactive projector  because you can enlarge the display, project the game on a wall or table, and play as a class. Use your finger or the interactive pen to control the gameplay from the board. Alternatively, you can have students play the games on their individual devices in the classroom, periodically sharing their work or questions on your projector for you to give feedback.
