“Mathematics is the alphabet with which God has written the universe.” ~Galileo Galilei
Coolmath.com is a wonderful math website that was started in 1997 by Karen, a math teacher with an M.S. in Mathematics. When she was younger, Karen didn’t like math and wasn’t very good at it, so she designed this website to be colorful and fun, to show that math can be easy to learn if you just look at it the right way. Cool Math has free online math lessons, games, and activities for ages 13+. The level of math is from pre-algebra and up. The site gives excellent examples that are clear and not too wordy.
Cool Math Karen also has a Cool Math 4 Kids site that has cool math games, fun activities, and cool math lessons for kids ages 3-12 featuring addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, decimals, etc.
In fact, she now has a whole network of websites that make learning fun! See below…
