Coolmath Games Review

What is Cool Math Games?

Cool Math Games is a website that offers a variety of math games, puzzles, and lessons for students of all ages. The website is a popular destination for students looking to improve their math skills while having fun at the same time.

Cool Math Games is the title of a mobile app on Android and iOS and a similar web app called www.coolmath.com. On all of these platforms, hundreds of games are available to play for free.

What we love about Cool Math Games?

Apps that contain many mini-games can often be quite variable in the quality of their presentation from game to game. Cool Math Games has avoided this pitfall; the games are all polished and attractive to play and free.

The games have been designed to work across multiple platforms, and they work on phones as well as they do on tablets, like the iPad. It is very easy to download Cool Math Games in advance and have it to hand to pass a few minutes in a fun way.

What skills does it improve?

The variety of games on Cool Math Games includes direct math knowledge and skill-based games, general problem-solving and puzzle games, and some purely for entertainment.

Is Cool Math Games free?

Cool Math Games mobile is free to download. There are no in-app purchases, premium versions, or subscriptions to add to the service, but it is advertisement-supported. The full-screen advertisements halt the user's navigation of the app but are not as frequent as in many other similar mini-game apps. 

How much does Cool Math Games cost?

The version of Cool Math Games at www.coolmathgames.com does have a premium version which removes the ads. This is available as a monthly subscription and does not appear to be usable on the mobile apps although it will work within mobile browsers.

Premium Membership means an improved experience with no ads, the ability to use big screen mode as much as you want, access to cool avatars and themes, the option to set a custom nickname, and unlimited playlists. You can pick either the $5.99 per month plan or get a whole year for $60.00.

Benefits of Cool Math Games

Student Benefits:

Children who enjoy diverse play experiences will appreciate Cool Math Games' variety. While not all games are math-focused, many enhance concentration, reasoning, and planning skills, developing their cognitive abilities beyond just reflexes.

Teacher Benefits:

Cool Math Games offers a safe platform for children to play games as a reward or during constructive playtime, compatible with both iPads and PCs. Teachers can curate a playlist of suitable games for specific lessons, but monitoring usage is necessary to ensure appropriate play.

Parental Benefits:

For parents, Cool Math Games is a cost-effective option frequently requested for new apps. Its wide range of child-appropriate games makes it a reliable choice for a child’s iPad or mobile device. Parents can download and review the app first before allowing access on their children’s devices.

What age is it appropriate for?

The app is rated as being for players of 9 and above. Many of the games are likely to be playable by younger children, but the constant exposure to advertisements may not be ideal for kids.

Is Cool Math Games easy to use?

Browsing through the selection of games in this app is accessible on mobile and the web. The games themselves have simple controls and include, where appropriate, brief instructions to define the goal and explain how to play.

Is Cool Math Games safe to use?

This app has hundreds of games and new ones are frequently added. None of the ones encountered at the time of review could be considered unsuitable for children.

The Cool Math Games mobile and web apps contain advertisements that are from third parties. No inappropriate advertisements were encountered during this review.

What we don't like about Cool Math Games

Cool Math Games as a title for this app is not a good descriptor for many of the games in the app, which have little, if anything, to do with math. Most of the games do require some thought to play but then, that is true of most games anyway. Some games focus on number but are mixed in with the other games, at least in the mobile apps.  

While you can choose the Stop and Think category on Cool Math mobile, to narrow down the selection to those more cerebral games, a further category specifically for math games would be helpful for those who have downloaded the app for this specific type of game.

On the website www.coolmath.com, which features the same games, players can drill down into a Number category which is very useful.

Verdict: Cool Math Games Review

Cool Math Games offers a diverse and high-quality selection of thinking games, providing cerebral entertainment. Despite the distracting advertisements, which are necessary for funding, it excels as a general entertainment app. However, given its name, the limited number of games directly related to math is a bit disappointing, though it's positive that many games emphasize thinking over action. The app has earned a four-star rating.
