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 kindergarten (comprising Pre-K and Kindergarten, children aged 4 to 5 and 5 to 6) are carefully designed to be age-appropriate in terms of difficulty and scope. Each topic is located within a certain Category and sub-category. For instance, The topic "Bridge through 10" is in the sub-category "Adding numbers" within the Category "Addition".
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 math level commonly introduced in US preschools. This means that your preschool child should see similar math problems to those she sees at preschool for any particular subject. Please let us know if that is not the case.
