Cool Tool | Hooda Math

CREDIT Hooda MathAs other edtech tools get more and more expensive, Hooda Math provides students with completely free math resources. Michael Edlavitch, a former middle school math teacher, launched hoodamath.com after he realized students needed math games that were both fun and educational.  Today the site houses hundreds of engaging math games, and Edlavitch’s team recently optimized more than 50 of their most popular games for access on mobile devices. The games on the site range from basic skill practice to more complicated escape games, where students must use their math skills and logic to navigate through a virtual world.  Teachers can even search the site to find games targeting the specific skills their students need to master. In addition to the math games, Hooda Math also provides students with free learning resources, like timed tests. Students and teachers can select a test with 25, 50 or 100 problems. The web app reports the percentage correct, lists incorrect answers, and tracks how long it takes students to complete the test. After a student completes their test, a report can be printed or emailed to a teacher or parent. The tests are available for addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and mixed operations – and they just released a new fractions timed test as well. Hooda Math unveils new games on the site every week and is constantly tailoring games to user feedback. Check it out.
