Of the sites that I reviewed for my math class, this was my favorite. I am not sure if that was because the site was designed for elementary school students or because of its very easy to understanding format and layout. I spent about 30 minutes on this site. As I reviewed the content, I found that the examples that were used to "teach" the topic were very helpful and enabled me to walk through solving the problem.

Technical Remarks:

The site is easy to use, visually appealing, easy to navigate, and welcoming. The content is easy to find and the applications are organized well.
Time spent reviewing site: Greater than 30 minutes. I attempted to view the site as if I were an elementary school student (not hard to do) and see if I could understand the components without further instruction. Great site and one that would be benefical to have in the classroom to help illustrate key points.

Math Playground contains a vast collection of student-friendly math activities. Content covers basic operations, coordinates, algebraic reasoning and problem solving. Site works well for whole class activities using a standard projector. Try the function machine - your students will enjoy it immensely.
