If your student or child needs more practice with order of operations, here are some online games for that. These shouldn't include integers, but just the four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division) and parenthesis.

Most kids just love using games and interactive quizzes for practice instead of worksheets. Have fun!

Hi,

I would also like to introduce my own endeavors for an online math environment. It's still in early times but I think captures the idea of giving kids a place to see how basic math operations are done in an interactive, animated way.

I would really appreciate any feedback anyone has for improvements, additional features etc..

Wow! Tonnes of great links in here. And not just in the post, but also the comments!
From personal experience, I think the most important thing is being able to engage them in an entertaining way. Thankfully math is so easy to turn into puzzle games. Only recently I've been placing math puzzles in the context of fantasy adventures: and the math becomes codes and riddles they have to figure out to move the story along.
It's been great fun so far!
