The games provided by Fun Brain can be categorized either by subject or grade level to help you and your child find what you need.

A popular math game is 'Math Baseball'. In this game, your child must answer math problems correctly in order to swing and hit the ball. The level of play ranges from 'easy' to 'super brain' and the problems cover addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. You can also choose to have the problems presented in an algebraic format.

'Stay Afloat' is a typical word game from Fun Brain. It's similar to Hangman; however, the objective is to prevent a boat from sinking. You can decide what kinds of words will be included in the game. The topics include science, geography, history and music.
