Math Games, Word Games, Strategy Games and More

The Problem Site is loaded with great games for students. Some of the games are traditional "hang-man" style games, some of the games are traditional games with a twist, and some of the games are completely new. Each game is designed to help students develop problem solving skills. The games are categorized as word games, math games, or strategy games. In addition to those categories there are two sections that offer non-game challenge problems.

Applications for Education
The Problem Site is a good place for teachers to direct students toward to practice problem solving skills individually. The games are probably best suited for use in middle school or upper elementary school grades. Some of the games have different levels of difficulty that students can choose from making those games good resources for differentiation within the classroom.
