Practise solving mathematics by playing fun bingo games. It beats filling in sheets of homework questions any day. You can create bingo games that practice addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
Just specify the types of maths questions you want to appear in the bingo game. Then press MAKE BINGO. A window will appear with the components of your bingo game. Print the window and cut out the components.
The bingo game consists of a bunch of maths questions, followed by the game cards that contain answers. Cut out each individual question and place them all face down on the table. The bingo caller will pick them up one by one to call them out. Cut out the game cards and give one to each player. For each maths questions shown by the bingo caller, the players will need to calculate the answer and then see if their own bingo card contains that answer. If it does, the player marks that spot on their card. The first player to have all the answers on their game card filled in will call out 'BINGO!' and wins the game. You may want to have paper and pencil handy so that players can do the maths calculations and draw circles to count for each question if necessary, making this bingo game a fun way to practise maths and see how others calculate maths questions.
If you want, you can specify what types of mathematic questions will appear, how big a numbers are to appear in the questions and whether to include negative numbers.

"Give me a baby on the brink, I will do the rest...
Voilà-ladies and gentlemen, I give you: a Sleeping Baby."
It used to be, if you put people to sleep, you were considered Dull; now, it's a Gift.
quoted from "Babyhood" by Paul Reiser of television's "Mad About You", pages 153-154
Small children should be supervised by a caregiver when at a computer,
to ensure no accidents occur that could hurt the child and that no equipment gets broken.
