Million Dollar Math is something our teacher has us participate in. She gives everybody a hard math question and if you get the answer correct, you get a million dollar sticker. At the end of the year the student with the most stickers wins a prize. I have $20 million, or 20 stickers, so far so I am hoping to get the prize.

Free Rice (freerice.com) is a website where you complete problems in math and other subjects too. It helps improve your math skills while also fighting world hunger. For every correct answer you get, they donate 10 grains of rice. This is why this game is special. My high score in math is 1,200 grains of rice to feed the people who need it.
