First of all, thanks for coming to
Coolmath! When teachers first come to Coolmath, they
often don't know what to look at first and, really, there's so much
here that it would require several hours of dedicated geek time.
So, here's an overview of what we have!
First of all, you can navigate to all of
our sites, lessons, games and activities by just going to
site's homepage is a portal to all of our sites and to everything we
We have several sites that are all
interconnected, so, as you navigate around, you might end up
visiting more than one site without really knowing it! You can
always look up at the top of the page to see where you are at.
As a teacher, I know you are very concerned
about what sites you use in the classroom and need to make sure they
are safe for the kids, so, before I go any further, let me address
First of all, I've created every bit of
content myself - except for some of our games. For these, I
pre-screen every single game myself - all the way through.
I'll discuss this more on our games page, but all games are safe and
do not contain ads or links to other websites.
The second concern is our advertising. I personally
pre-screen every single ad that runs on our Coolmath sites.
Although we work with the best and safest ad networks, there are
still ads that they offer us that I don't feel are appropriate for a
sensitive audience. These networks do offer filters that can
take out specific categories of ads and most other websites trust
these to do their screening work for them, but I know they still let
things through that I wouldn't want on my sites. Yes, we make
less money this way, but I don't have to worry about what your kids
are seeing while they spend time with Coolmath.

Now, on to our sites! My main goal
has always been to take the fear out of math and get kids to realize
that math can be fun! (And, of course, cool.)
We have two main math lesson sites:
