Our math topics for kindergarten learners are designed to follow closely the Common Core standards for math for kindergarten pupils.
One step problems
Add using number bonds
Kindergarten addition starts with "Adding numbers", either single digit numbers or pairs of numbers that add up to less than 20. In "Number bonding" there are topics for bonding pairs of numbers to 10, 15 and 20. This idea is extended in "Add using number bonds" where you apply what you learnt to find the number bonds for numbers that add to those values. In "Add lengths" you learn how to add together measurements made in centimetres or metres using a ruler or scale. In the "One step problems" topics you are asked to identify the missing number or missing answer in addition sums. In "Matching additions" you get to compare addition sums and decide which ones give the same answer. Word problems ask you to work out the total cost of buying 2 or 3 different items.
Add single-digit numbers
Count on in ones to add two single-digit numbers together
Bridge through 10 addition
Count on in ones to add past 10 into double-digits
Missing number addition: 1 to 20
Find the missing number for these additions of two numbers that add up to less than 20
Missing answer addition: 1 to 20
Find the missing answer for these additions of two numbers between 1 and 20
Addition: Number bonding to 10
In each list identify the number pairs that bond to 10
Addition: Number bonding to 20
In each list identify the number pairs that bond to 20
Addition: Number bonding to 15
In each list identify the number pairs that bond to 15
Number bond single-digit numbers
Find the number that bonds with the given number to get the given answer
Single-digit plus double-digit bonding
Use number bonding to add a single-digit number and a double-digit number
Add four numbers
Use number bonding to simplify adding four numbers
Match additions: 1-digit numbers
From 3 tiles showing single-digit addition sums, choose the 2 tiles that give the same answer
Total number of items
Use addition to find out how many of the given item the friends have in total
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.
See the help box below for instructions on choosing a topic here at Free Math Games.
UXO * Duck shoot * The frog flies * Pong * Cat and mouse * The beetle and the bee
Rock fall * Four in a row * Sow grow * Choose or lose * Mix and match
Click on the "1. Start" button in the top navigation bar - that brings you to this elementary level topic selection page. On the topic selection page you will see that the topics are divided up:
Since you are currently within the elementary section of Free Math Games you will see the elementary topics. The elementary grades will have loaded. Choose your grade. The broad categories available will load. Click on a category to see the available sub-categories and topics.
For example, if you choose fifth grade, then the category: "Fractions" you will be offered a choice of fraction sub-categories and topics suitable for Grade 5. Click on each sub-category to view the available topics.
When you click on the name of a topic, the topic will load into the lesson page (once a topic has loaded it will be available for all activities and will not have to be downloaded again) and the lesson start page will be displayed. You can choose to do the lesson or jump immediately to the games using that topic.
