Free Technology For Teachers: Number Nut - Games and Word Problems for Math is a part of the Rader's family of educational games and activities that I learned about via Twitter (follow me here). Number Nut provides some great games with which students can practice and develop their math skills. Unlike many other Math game websites, Number Nut includes some word problems that force students to problem solve rather than just recall information from rote memorization.

Applications for Education
Number Nut's categorization makes it easy for teachers to differentiate and select the games or activities most appropriate for each student. The games and activities on Number Nut range from very simple things like recognizing shapes and colors to more complex concepts like calculating ratios. The math glossary available on Number Nut is helpful for students unfamiliar with a term or concept to problem solve on their own.
