10 math games for high school students
Math is perhaps one of the boring and frightening subjects for most middle school and high school
students. One way to master math is by constant practice. And students can barely take out some
extra time exclusively for math as other subjects would take the toll for being neglected. An
alternative solution to this problem is perhaps through math games. Well, math games are not only
for kids who’ve just started going to school, but it is also for middle school and high school students
who want to improve math skills.
Here are some of the tried and tested math games for middle school and high school students
One Step Equation: One Step Equation is a simple game for middle school students. This game lets
you practice simple or one step equations which mostly involve solving one substitution equations,
such as a + 10 = 25, find out a. The questions extend to fractions as well, so you needn’t worry about
the complexity that the game offers.
Adding Integers Game: Adding Integers Game is a simple game that teaches you to quickly add,
subtract and identify positive and negative numbers easily. This is ideally suited for children studying
5th or 6th grades. The player needs to identify whether or not scrolling simple equations result in
positive, negative or zero and drag them in the assigned places.
Multiplying and Dividing Integers: So far we’ve seen addition and subtraction of integers. Now, its
time to tighten the games a little bit. Well, most kids can manage with addition or subtraction, but
not all of them are good with multiplication and division and that’s where many kids have issues
with. This game improves the odds by helping you to practice multiplication and division faster
without the use of pen and paper.
Square Root Game: Square roots are another troublesome problems which students face. Well,
here’s one way to remember square roots, at least until you learn how to calculate square roots by
yourself. You need to match the correct square root with given multiple options.
Rational and Irrational Numbers Game: This game is particularly helpful in teaching students to
quickly identify whether or not given numbers are rational or irrational. The numbers include square
roots, fractions, negative numbers, etc. You need to drag the numbers into the two boxes named
Rational and Irrational present at the bottom.
Absolute Value Equations: Absolute Value Equations is a game very similar to “Who Wants To Be A
Millionaire”. You need to answer questions based on points of denominations of 1000 to 100,000.
Each of the question is about integers with four options. You need to identify the right option.
Power Concentration Game: Power Concentration Game helps you to learn about powers with
integer bases and exponents which you need to match each power with the right number. A number
say 2^-2 is given and the right number that matches with it is ¼. So, that’s how you play this game.
Pyramid Panic: Pyramid Panic is a game that teaches geometry. The game is about a Egyptian
Pharaoh who has been mistakenly mummified. You need to help the Pharaoh to escape from the
Pyramid using your geometry skills. Be careful as a monster mummy is behind the Pharaoh and will
get to him. So, you need to be quick.
A Tangled Web: A Tangled Web is about itzi, a spider which wants to rescue its family which is
trapped. You need to help Itzi in solving puzzles on angles so that Itzi can go to his family and rescue
them. The game teaches you simple to complex geometry all through the levels.
Quadrilateral Properties: Quadrilateral Properties is not a game but it actually helps in learning
about different shapes and their properties such as the characteristics of the shapes, angles, area,
etc. In this case, simple shapes such as square, rectangle, rhombus, trapezoid, etc are given. Few
statements are given which you have to identify whether they are true or false.
With these math games, we hope your math grows stronger than before. Wishing you all the very
