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.
