Cash Out
You’re the cashier at this crazy store. You need to give change to the customers buying things. Try to sell as many items as possible before the time runs out. First select game play options, then read the word problem and find out how much money you owe. Click on the coins and bills to make the correct change. For example, if you owe the customer $0.77, click on the quarter three times and click on the penny two times.

 

Tony Fraction’s Pizza Shop

Tony Fraction’s Pizza Shop, my most popular game, is now available for the ipad, ipod, and iphone for $0.99. See how much money you can make in five minutes by using your equivalent fraction skills to fill your customer pizza orders. Be careful, though, your customers are a picky bunch and expect their toppings to be applied according to their odd fractional specifications. If you apply them incorrectly, expect to pay a stiff penalty.

Drag – n – Drop Math

Just like the Flash version on MrNussbaum.com, DragNDrop Math allows students to complete any addition, multiplication, subtraction, or division problem just like they would with paper and a pencil. DragNDrop Math is perfect for students who have trouble keeping numbers organized in large problems, as my unique drag and drop system allows students to seamlessly drag numbers into place. Math problems can be customized to allow the user to choose the number of problems and number of digits in each number for each problem. Users can also choose to work on graph “paper”, lined “paper” or blank space. Users can input their own problems. Of course, the program checks to see whether or not the answer is correct and allows students to go back and try incorrect problems again.

Around the World
Around the World is a computer-adapted version of the clasic classroom game – Around the World. In this version, the user competes against kids from all over the world in a game of multiplication flash cards. Be careful, some of the kids in the classroom are faster than others! If you can go “Around the World,” you will receive a special certificate at the end of the game.

Piggy Bankers
Practice your coin and money counting skills in Piggy Bankers! Catch coins and currency falling from the sky to try to reach your target savings amount! Use the arrows to move your piggy banker. Be careful, if you collect more than your target, the game is over. Be on the lookout for spinning tokens. If you can catch a spinning token, you’ll have the opportunity to enter the amount of money needed to reach your target.

Torture the Teacher
Torture your teachers by clicking on the INCORRECT spellings of the words that appear on the chalkboard! Try your hardest to make Mrs. Applecrab, Mrs. Cornpop, and Mr. Nussbaum resign by frustrating them so much with your poor spelling skills! It’s you versus the teachers! You will have the opportunity to make three teachers resign! Be careful though, it gets harder as you move from classroom to classroom as the teachers in later rounds have incredible patience!

Mathepillar

Mathepillar is an outrageously fun game in which players have to order falling numbers on a number line by positioning their caterpillar in the correct place to catch the numbers. There are four stages to the game, and each stage presents a slightly more complicated number line or pattern. If a player can pass all four stages, he or she can print out one of six limited edition butterfly certificates, each featuring a different species of butterfly. Try to collect all six!

Sweet 16 Word Madness
 Do you like the NCAA Basketball Tournament, commonly referred to as “March Madness?” If so, this game is for you. First choose your team. Then, use your word recognition and spelling skills to click on the basketball that completes the word at the top of the page. Choose correctly and you’ll hit a basket or three-pointer, choose incorrectly or too slowly and your opponent will score. Be careful, though, each round gets progressively tougher. You will have to be an expert in word completion to win the National Championship.

EZ Fractions
EZ Fractions is an amazing tool for students to use that simplifies the process of adding, subtracting, multiplying, or dividing fractions. It’s perfect for students who have trouble with multi-step math problems that require precise calculations and conversions.
