You start your journey here at Free Maths Games by selecting a maths topic.Each topic consists of between 4 and 16 question and answer pairs that you can access in all the games, lessons and tests. Topics are chosen on this 'Topics' page and will remain selected until you return to this page and choose a different one.
Our maths topics for preschool (children aged 4 to 5 and 5 to 6) are carefully designed to be age-appropriate in terms of difficulty and scope. Each topic is located within a certain Category and sub-category. For instance, The topic "Bridge through 10" is in the sub-category "Adding numbers" within the Category "Addition".
Please see in the interface above, and in the lists below, the topics that are available for age 4 to 5 pupils in your selected category 'Addition'.
Age 4 to 5 addition introduces children to the idea of addition with 2 topics in the Addition to 3 sub-category. It also uses the idea of 1 more than.. to encourage children to conceptualize adding one in an easily digestible form. More advanced additions with digits up to 6 are also introduced.

A topic is selected at the beginning of a session at Free Maths Games and will be remembered when you move between games or activities. The maths for the topic is carefully constructed to match the INTL preschool maths taught around the world. This means you should see similar maths problems to those your child is seeing at preschool for any particular subject. Please let us know if that is not the case.
