You start your journey here at Free Math Games by selecting a math topic.Each topic consists of between 4 and 16 question and answer pairs that you can access in all the games, lessons and tests. Topics are chosen on this 'Topics' page and will remain selected until you return to this page and choose a different one.
Our math topics for Elementary (Grade 1 to Grade 5) are designed to follow closely the Common Core standards for math for each grade. Each topic is located within a certain Category and sub-category. For instance, The topic "4 digit numbers: tens" is in the sub-category "Identify the place value" within the Category "Place value".
Please see in the interface above the topics that are available for your selected location and age range.
A topic is selected at the beginning of a session at Free Math Games and will be remembered when you move between games or activities. The math for the topic is carefully constructed to match the elementary math level commonly taught in US schools. This means that you as an Elementary pupil should see similar math problems to those you are seeing at school (if you are at school) for any particular subject. Please let us know if that is not the case.
