Which games are free?

 

Sumdog’s game-based learning is designed to motivate as many children as possible. Each Sumdog game can be used to practice a vast range of skills.

In order to test out the games and improve your students’ skills, engagement and confidence within maths, we are offering six of our most popular games for free. Children can work on any skill in any game, enabling them to always play the games they enjoy most.

 

How can I access all of the free games?

Our newer games run on HTML5, a web-based program. HTML5 is usually enabled on the latest version of Chrome, Firefox, Edge and Safari. Unfortunately, if you are using Internet Explorer you will need to change browsers as HTML5 is not supported on IE due to its legacy program. Click here for the latest supported browser version.

 

Why are only some games free?

As much as we would love to make all of Sumdog free, as its popularity grows so do its running costs. We want to make Sumdog the best possible platform for all students and teachers and in order to fund this investment, we need schools to subscribe to Sumdog. By doing so you will allow us to develop even more tools to support our mission; to close the gap and help all children succeed.

 

What is included in a subscription?

As well as extra games and activities, a Sumdog subscription gives you access to a range of valuable teachers tools, designed to help you gain more insight into your students’ abilities, target your interventions and cut down on workload. Find out more here.

 

Why does one of my students have access to more games than the rest of my class?

If your student is also linked to a family account and their parents have purchased a family subscription, then they will have access to the additional subscription games. (If the school has bought a subscription it could be that they do not have flash enabled for all browsers).
