A Little Help With Math

Math is one of those subjects that I am always trying to make more 'fun'.  Perhaps it stems from my deep, abiding hatred of math.  Okay, maybe not hatred.  Loathing? Anyway, as  kid I had terrible math anxiety. 

Here are some links I have come across that have made math a little more fun.

Xtra Math is a free website that aids in mathmatical fluency.  My daughter is in the 4th grade and honestly needs a little extra practice where math is concerned.  My son grasps math well, but improving speed is always a good thing...right?  Both children have enjoyed to speed drills and the 'race the teacher' games on this site.

MathMagician ( ) helps with multiplication tables.

Math Playground (  ) has games that extend into middle school.  It includes logic problems and word problems and algebra, oh my!

Edheads ( )  focuses on science, math and logic.  Good stuff.

Manga High ( )
Number Nut  (  )
Arcademics  (  )

These 'round out' the list.

How about you?  Are there any cool online math sites that you use for your students?
