Design: Created and maintained by the BBC, the site uses a brilliant design. All of the individual pages pop with color and engage without being distracting. Likewise, the interactive games and quizzes capture students’ attention and keep them focused.

Review: This site receiveBBC MAthss high marks for ease of use, breadth of topic coverage and all-in-one convenience.

Users find a list of math disciplines on the homepage. There, they can choose from disciplines such as numbers, measurement, algebra and handling data. Each discipline contains a textual lesson, followed by an interactive game. The games reinforce the particular lesson and let students test their knowledge. If a task in the game is not completed properly, the student may try again. Once the game is complete, students take a quiz that’s graded instantly.

While this site is certainly no substitute for classroom instruction, it is a robust, complete companion to classroom instruction.

Bottom Line: Why bother with boring math drills and typical homework assignments when a site like this exists?
