NOT timed math fact apps/websites?


Recommended Posts

The Prodigy math game is untimed. If you want to use it for fact practice specifically you can assign that from your parent/teacher account (if you don't create assignments the game follows its own adaptive algorithm to assign problems).

The game is free but can get annoying with reminders that members get extra perks. A membership is about $14 per year through a group buy--there are Facebook groups that coordinate these.

You definitely want computer games she can do on her own time, not games you or someone else could play with her in real life, right? 

Right. I have stuff to do with her, games and such. But I can't get to those every day, and she needs a way to practice on her own some. 

The Free Rice is perfect - not timed, no pressure, and she wil feel good helping to feed people!

So she tried free rice and LOVES it!!!! She doesn't even sign in, so there is no tracking scores or anything to make her feel anxious. And they don't take "rice" away for wrong answers, so no pressure at all. Which is perfect. She just kept saying, "I really like this!" over and over as she did it 🙂

She got 200 grains of rice, so 20 correct answers which seems like a good amount of practice for a quick, fun, session.

Mathgames.com has been great for ds who also freezes up when he is aware he is being timed. Some of the games have an obvious timer, some have a soft timer (kids don't necessarily realized they are being timed and the time limit is not emphasized, it just controls how quickly an enemy is defeated, faster they answer, the faster it dies) and a surprising amount of the games have no timer at all, they can sit there all day and it will wait for them.

Don't count down - count up.  "Do this 100 fact sheet - try to finish in less than 20 minutes!"  Start the timer.  It takes the child 13 minutes.  "Try to beat yesterday's time of 13 minutes!  Yay!  You did it in 12!"  Keep on working until you are fluent!
