Big Daddy's Math Drills
Big Daddy's Math Drills is a cross platform set of simple text based drills in basic addition, subtraction, multiplication and division tables featuring programmed instruction, adaptive learning, and user profiles.

Bingo-cards
'bingo-cards' lets you create number, word/letter, and picture bingo cards. They can be used for entertainment in the car, in a classroom (for example, to teach the element symbols for the Periodic Table), or just with your kids. You can also create cards with little pictures of everyday objects, then call the names out in Spanish, French, Italian, or German (or whatever you fancy).

Blockly
Blockly is a web-based, graphical programming editor. Users can drag blocks together to build an application. No typing required.

It offers activities dedicated to little kids like learning the mouse and keybord. It teaches letters, numbers, words, basic algebra training, reading time on an analog clock, vector drawing, and much more.

JILetters
'JILetters' assists young children with learning the Western alphabet through visual and auditory means. It uses a phonic representation of each letter and cursive script to present the letters of the alphabet. It lets children memorise letters from visual cues.

KLogo-Turtle
The KLogo-Turtle is a useful tool for teaching geometry and the basic principles of the programming of computer. Children can study the mathematics of geometry in an interactive and constructive way.

Khan exercises
Khan Academy has created a generic framework for building exercises. This framework, together with the exercises themselves, can be used completely independently of the Khan Academy application.

The framework exists in two components:

  • An HTML markup for specifying exercises.
  • A jQuery plugin for generating a usable, interactive, exercise from the HTML markup.

Using the Framework Locally

You need to serve the files from some sort of a server. You can't just open the files directly in a browser. For example:

   cd khan-exercises
   python -m SimpleHTTPServer

or

   cd khan-exercises
   python3 -m http.server

Now if you open your browser to `http://localhost:8000` (or `http://127.0.0.1:8000/`) you should see the contents of the `khan-exercises` directory. Navigate to the `exercises` subfolder, and an HTML file under there to see an exercise.


Writing Exercises

The process for writing exercises is rather well documented. More information about this process can be found in the Khan Exercises wiki. Specifically:

Kronophobia
