The idea behind the Transum web site seems to be that learning maths should be fun and enjoyable as well as productive. So there are loads of games, puzzles, quizzes, timed exercises and so on, all with a mathematical theme that will appeal to children and adults alike. There are games such as the traditional sliding tile puzzle as well as Pentominoes (think Tetris but without gravity). And there are against-the-click tests of your knowledge of multiplication tables, which is much more fun that it sounds.
Young or not-so-young, you'll enjoy this site. There's no software to download, either - just head to www.transum.org in your browser and start having some educational fun.
