Games makes Math Teaching successful. Numerópolis is a web site teaching math to children between third and sixth grade in Venezuela. Numerópolis is a city made of numbers where only one person, Don Millán, owns all of the fun places. He does not charge for entrance, but proposes math challenges to those who want to have fun in the city. The basic sections of Numerópolis are games that practice the most important math subjects in elementary school in Venezuela. In Don Millán’s library teachers and parents can find e-books on teaching math to the children and sets of self-evaluations. The site’s records a child’s progress through the games and the record can be used as feed-back by the child, teacher or parent.
