Comment: I was kinda surprised about the math games and puzzles. I tried beating the computer for the coin game and it was hard. I tried some of the other games and some of them were interesting and not just simple or stupid math games that a kid can do. There were a lot of games and puzzles to do and not just three or four. The activities represented just as they said the point of the games were. The directions were easy to understand and follow. Perhaps they should include more things for higher math or games for different levels such as going from easy to extremely hard. I think that this website reinforces the concept that learning can be fun,even more so with math. I think if using games, puzzles and other activities can not only help students learn and understand math concepts but also help teachers better help and engage students to learn math, it is a good tool to use. As a student I can say that I don't always like or understand math concepts sometimes, but if I had tools such as these to help reinforce concepts, it would change my way of thinking of math. We all learn in different ways, some are more literal or analytical, whereas others are more visual. I think this website would be a great tool for someone who is more visual, but in general it would be good for all. It is something different than how we usually learn math by attending class, taking notes, doing homework, taking tests, and who knows if your really getting the concepts or your just winging it.
