Math Ski Jumps


Grades 3-5

Solving basic math problems.

Students are placed in the role of an Olympic ski jumper as he is getting ready to head down the slope. As he descends descends a math problem appears beneath the ramp. Using the mouse, students must select the correct answer. Regardless of whether the answer is correct or not, a new problem immediately appears as the jumper continues down the slope. The more correct answers entered before the jumper reaches the end of the ramp leads to a further jump. Get all the problems correct and the jumper sports wings and flies to a giant trophy.

Students may select from any of the following types of problems for the game to focus on: addition, subtraction, division, and muliplication.
