Math Run - A Fun Game for Practicing Math Skills

Math Run is a simple and fun game for practicing math skills. Math Run presents players with a scrolling series of mathematics problems. The players respond to each problem by using the right and left arrow keys on their keyboards. If a problem is displayed with its correct answer press the left arrow and if the wrong answer is displayed press the right arrow. The game begins with simple addition problems and gets progressively more difficult as players advance through the levels.

Applications for Education
Some people deride games like Math Run as being simplistic "drill and kill" and activities. But as Kelly Tenkely wrote earlier today, there is still some room for these type of activities for helping students retain basic information. A game like Math Run is one way for students to practice basic math skills while perhaps enjoying the process.
