50+ Fun and Interesting Middle School Math Games

Here at Education Possible, we’re all about interactive learning methods. Math is one of those subjects that can be challenging to teach and boring to review. That’s why I include games into our math lessons whenever possible. My kids seem to learn better when they’re having fun and there’s less pressure.

Games were incredibly easy to find when we were working on elementary math, but now that my kids are in middle school and learning fractions, decimals, and algebra, it’s become a bit more challenging. So I decided to search for games that would work for my older kids.

Here’s my huge list, full of some amazing games that will teach and challenge your middle schooler.

Because so many of the middle school math subjects overlap within the games, I’ve split the list according to the type of game it is. That way if you’re looking for a specific style of game, like an online computer game or a board game, you can easily find it.
