While waiting in a doctor’s office, I had an interesting conversation with a remedial math teacher.  He feels strongly that students must master the basics by 3rd grade.  Working with flash cards is not the most exciting thing to do. If you can disguise drill as a game it becomes more interesting.  I did some snooping and found some games that drill on math concepts but are also fun.
