ZAP ZAP MATH - K6 MATH GAMES is a collection of science and space-themed math activities (some games and some more like drills) for kids in Kindergarten through 6th grade. The activities, tied to the Common Core standards, cover topics such as shapes, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, decimals, and telling time. Many of them build on each other, so first and second graders will see similar activities around shapes, for example, but with added complexity. Each topic/math skill in each grade has four activities: training, accuracy, speed, and mission. The four activities are grouped around a theme, such as number basics, but may cover different skills, such as rounding decimals, using word to express equations, and creating equations to solve a problem. Only the speed activities have a high-pressure timer, although some of the others will eventually time out if kids don't respond. While the first three activities tend to be drill-based, the missions tend to be more puzzle-based. Even the drills are themed, such as helping to rebuild a rocket, making toys, and reanimating a Frankenstein character. Kids earn stars and coins for each level completed and use them to unlock rooms, characters, and decor for a virtual spaceship.
In addition to the math activities, there are tools for parents and teachers. They can access a list of the standards covered and click through to see which activities touch on those standards. Through a web portal, they can access a detailed "report card" of each child's progress. They can also create quizzes to test kids on the skills they have been practicing.
