Addictive and adaptive games to help kids memorize math facts

Pros: Eye-catching graphics, simple gameplay, and low cognitive threshold will hook kids right away, plus point systems might keep some kids playing.

Cons: Only helps with memorization and quick recall, not pattern recognition, grouping, or deep understanding of numerical relationships.

Bottom Line: If worksheets are too dull but you need the same kind of skill-practice question sets, this is certainly a more engaging format.
