We have compiled an EPIC list of math websites, apps and games for kids that come highly recommended by teachers or by members of our Facebook Group (which you absolutely must join, if you haven’t yet!). All of our Free Lesson Plans have a math component, but we get asked all the time for more math resources, so we put this together for you!
The majority of math apps and websites are free, however, some of them are only free during the current Coronavirus / COVID-19 period. So to make it easy to differentiate, anything marked with an asterisk (*) either costs money now or will cost money at some point in the future. If you have any suggestions for other great math websites, games or apps, please leave a comment on this post or post them in our Facebook Group! We will continually be updating this list, so save it on Pinterest and check back often (and while you are on Pinterest, follow us here!)

Yummy Math Review
Yummy Math is such a cool concept! They feature loads of real-world math activities. For example, they will post a photo of a price menu from a real deli restaurant that has two price columns: one for a regular sandwich and the other for a “BIG one” sandwich that is 30% bigger. They have to figure out if the “BIG one” is a good deal for all sandwiches, some sandwiches or none at all. Definitely worth checking out this website.
