Tower Climber – Race To The Top And Learn Addition

Tower Climber is a fun new game on the Sumdog math website. It’s a race to climb a skyscraper. Click the right answer and you’ll climb up a level, but choose the wrong number and you’ll fall back down.

You can use Tower Climber and other games on Slumdog.com to practice the following subjects: Ordering numbers, addition, subtraction, doubling, halving, rounding, times, division, square numbers, square roots and much more.

    This is one of my favorites. It gets my kids juiced up to win beating the challengers. If ind it especially useful for multiplication tables. It is one of my favorite fun games for math

  • These kinds of online games and tools are great for kids. There should be a separate “Web” filled with great sites and tools like this. There’s so much stuff out there that is unhealthy, dangerous, or both. Sometimes parenting these days feels more like “protecting”.

    WOW! will ever my grandchildren love this?

    I wish we had fun interactive games like this when I was a kid. I can see how it engages my kids; I’m sure I would have learned math easier with it.

    Most Anti-virus programs have parental controls in them so you can stop your child accessing the bad sites. It’s similar to the parental controls on your TV.

    Yup, I totally agree with Susan on that one. Childhood education has changed drastically since I was a kid too… and that was only 15 years ago years ago. Who knows what the changes will be like ten years from now.

    I’m thinking that this Tower Climber might be an awesome game for my nephew. He enjoys building huge skyscrapers with his lego, so this game would be both fun and educational for him.

    Looks like a pretty neat game. Sure beats flash cards and times tables. I always wonder about the effectiveness of games like these though. It may be easier to get kids to play a game like this than to memorize a times table, but are the kids really learning as much?

    Kids learning habits are now great influenced by technology advancement. Games like this motivate them to get along with their lessons. Teachers have been utilizing several creative tools to integrate in their lessons, and this is definitely a good example.
