Flashcards for Kids

This site is an online, free application of flash cards for math with a variety of options and mathematical operations.

The site consists of one page and is a simple table format without color or graphics.

All the information needed to operate the application is well-marked and easy to use.

This page was set up to help kids learn basic math skills using the Internet. Because of the simplicity, this site would be appropriate for grades K-12 but would greatly reinforce lower level lesson plans. The user can choose the flash card to provide equations for addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and a combination of addition and subtraction. Other options to set include the "complexity" (the amount of numbers in an equation, from two to ten) and the numbers to be used (from 0-999). Once the flash card is set up a random equation appears with a box for the user to input an answer. The program either displays a congratulations message or an error message and gives the correct answer. Since the problems are randomly generated this program could be used over and over again. This could be a great starting point for math teachers new to the internet and wanting to incorporate an interactive lesson into their classroom but it is also a good resource for anyone wishing to brush up on math skills.
