hi julianthemath

3 great sites'; thanks for the links.

What do I think of them ?

My order of preference is:

best mathisfun. Excellent teaching resources and good puzzles too. My favourite bits are the interactive teaching aids. So many teach yourself sites just reproduce a paper text book on screen. What's the point of that ?

coolmath-games. Great animated games for hours of fun. I thought I'd try the fractions section and got stuck in a game to identify mixed fractions. After 10 minutes I was still clicking on mixed fractions. Where's the progression ? But I have only scratched the surface of what is there, so other games may be better. I think you have to try it for yourself.

math.about............ Ok if MIF didn't exist. Worth a visit but my first impression is the other two are more interesting and fun to use.
