Wait it involves math? I just lost all excitement I had for it.

99% of the games on Cool Math Games don't invole math. Including this one.

No, that is just what dumb teachers think. Just because it doesn't have direct equations doesn't mean it isn't math related at all.

I feel like I'm wading into an argument between primary school kids.. but...

Math's can be related to almost anything you do.

It depends on what you're trying to teach. Number cruchers did nothing for me as a kid. Portal teaches problem solving a creative thinking. It's one thing to force kids to memorize a set of numbers, it's another to teach them why and how to use them. The latter is much more important in life.

Why would you feel like that? I agree, and I was never arguing, just explaining something.

That maths can be related to almost anything, or the school comment?

The school comment because that level of hostility towards knowledge is unnatural - but very unfortunately is a very common and unpleasant result of the school system.

I think maybe your comment was pushing back against that a little bit, but I initially just read it as calling maths dumb.

No, I didn't intend it to come off as aggressive, I just think it is a bit dumb for many teachers to say games of things like cool math have nothing to do with math. I didn't say anything negative about math.

No, cool maths kids is one of those sites kids would use to play flash games at school that would bypass the filter.
