Mathslide

Math Slide is a multiplayer game that helps kids understand place value and basic math facts.  In the place value app, players learn by sliding tiles into the center to match an answer, equation or image. The player who slides their tiles first wins.  The same game is used for the basic math facts apps but here children practice their addition, subtraction, multiplication and division facts.  The games can be played by 1, 2, 3 or 4 players.
