Schools and teachers across the U.S. and Canada regard Tammy Worcester Tang as one of our country’s leading education technology experts (tammyworcester.com). She provides valuable insight to the development of our online games and apps and is co-writing a book with Greg on word problems for grades K-2 that will be published by Teacher Created Materials.
Four years ago, Greg Tang launched this website from a small coffee shop in Arlington, Massachusetts as a way to make his books, games, and teaching materials available to more students and teachers. Today, it is used by classrooms around the world to supplement their math curriculums and develop better computational and problem-solving skills.
Every activity has been designed to teach a critical skill or strategy while providing the repetition and practice required for mastery. Most importantly, each stays true to the ideal that teaching and learning should be clever and fun. None of our games use non-math activities to incent students to play. The hook of every game is the math itself and students spend every second doing math. It is all math, all the time.
Today, we are working harder than ever to improve our site. Soon, we’ll be adding instructional videos, organizing more national events like our Winter Math Challenge and March MATHness Tournament, and adding multiplayer games that offer kids an exciting alternative to non-educational video and computer games.
GregTangMath.com is an important part of Greg’s mission to help children of all ages, abilities and backgrounds. Since 2013, he has made his site free to everyone and continues to support it through his teaching and writing. We hope you and your students will continue to use and share our site both at school and at home.
