Schools and teachers across the U.S. and Canada regard Tammy Worcester Tang as one of our country’s leading education technology experts ( 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. 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.


The Hour of Code

The Hour of Code is a global movement reaching tens of millions of students in 180+ countries. Anyone, anywhere can organize an Hour of Code event. One-hour tutorials are available in over 45 languages. No experience needed. Ages 4 to 104.

Over the last three years the Hour of Code has reached more than 100 million students in over 180 countries. Last year, you helped make this the largest learning event in history, with record participation from girls and underrepresented minorities.

This year, help us reach every student with the opportunity to learn.

Computers are changing every industry on the planet, and coding has become relevant to a wide range of high-paying jobs—even those outside the technology and engineering fields. For millions of students, the Hour of Code will be an inspiring introduction to this crucial 21st century skill.

Want a technology professional to volunteer in your classroom?

Check out our volunteer database and schedule a classroom visit! We’re excited to be working with both independent professionals and volunteers from huge tech brands to make the Hour of Code even more special!

I’d like to personally thank every educator who’s hosted an Hour of Code so far. You’ve been an inspiration to all of us at Thank you for your support, and for all you do for the children of our world.

We hope your students have an amazing time!
