algebraFinding free educational games to challenge your children’s math skills when they get into middle school and high school can be a difficult task. Luckily, I came across a site that integrates important algebra skills with some of kids’ favorite pastimes: sports and action games.

If your children have a passion for basketball or soccer, they can place themselves in a virtual playoff or world cup tournament where they get a shot at making a basket or scoring a goal as a reward for choosing the correct answer to a multple choice algebraic equation.

At http://wwwalgebra4children.com, newcomers to algebra may choose an easier level, while more advanced students may choose to select problems that are more challenging.

Fans of video games can enjoy the same type of excitement while learning through their en garde sword dual game and pirate game. Kids can develop their skills in subtraction, addition, multiplication and division games. Other skills include converting ratios to fractions, surface area, and volume.

The site is so diverse it can help students from grade school throughout their high school years. Other algebra topics covered on the site include: Simplifying expressions, absolute value, binomial theorem, and calculating the domain, among a variety of other things.

    This is a great way to help kids stay focused on Algebra and other subjects that they may not be interested in otherwise.
