Free online math flash cards that I made

Got a phone, computer, or tablet? You can practice doing math in your head for FREE!

As a parent of young children, I always observe their screen time throughout the week. I understand that all kids love their devices. I tell them that tablets are so much more than just devices to watch baseball highlights, cat videos, and games. It’s a device that can access the world’s knowledge in the palm of their hands.

So since I have a background in writing code, I made a procedurally generated math quiz; basically, online math flashcards that get harder and harder as the player progresses and levels up.

When I was working on this, I had my children test it out and slowly watched their addiction forming as they were playing. I guess that’s a good thing right? I mean, it’s not much different than quickly adding two cards when you’re playing blackjack.

So I invite you or your young ones to give it a try and practice doing math in your heads.  So pick the type of math problems you want, and remember, there’s no “final level”, since the math problems are automatically generated. Let me know which level you end up at and how I can make it better.
