@joe_bower said he was looking for some decent math games online and couldn’t find any. I remembered that I used to make math games all the time so I fired off a bunch of links back. I decided it was worth gathering all those links into one spot. Who knows, maybe some of these old games are useful.

Good for teaching about perspective: **Labyrinth**

Gives students a feel for how fraction operations work: **Fractions operations**

Practice operations and solve a number puzzle: **Countdown**

See how simple rules result in much complexity: **John Conway’s Game of Life**

Practice factoring numbers & remember prime numbers: **Factors!**

Just a fun spaceship game (similar to Asteroids): **Spaceship game**

Useful for recognizing some similar fractions: **Horse Races**

Really just algebra practice & puzzle solving: **Algebra puzzle**

More of the same type as practice as above but quadratic algebra: **Quadratic algebra puzzle**

Look at patterns when moving rings: **Towers of Hanoi**

Try a variation of the classic logo programming language: **Logo Programming**

You missed my all time favourite: lure of the labyrinth ( http://labyrinth.thinkport.org/www/ ) for pre-algebra students (12ish) There is a bit of a pre-amble, but the game is really well designed, useful, and engaging.
