For teaching math, teachers can download softwares like christmath which deal with making young children familiar with patterns, sequences, addition, subtraction, ordinal numbers and memory games. Teachers can use spreadsheets and interactive whiteboards (IWB) to help children learn numeracy while interacting with one another. Math board games such as dice games, bingo and calculator games, geometry games with interactive layout can be used to help children take hold of main arithmetic and geometry skills together with times tables, word problems, ratio, percentage and mental addition.
