Cool Math Games Site is Not Shutting Down


Nolan Kelley

Many of you may have heard the rumor is that Cool Math Games is shutting down. The rumor started on June 1, 2019 but recently went viral in the the last month. Cool Math is a free website that people, particularly students, can use to play games for free to improve their math skills.

Our school uses the website a lot, especially in Mrs. Langford’s class. A lot of students were upset when they heard the website may be closing down; however, there’s good news! That information is false.

Cool Math Games is not shutting down. The program is just replacing the Adobe Flash games with HTML 5 that is better supported but Chrome and Internet Explorer. Adobe will be discontinuing support for Flash in February 2020, so Cool Math is taking precautions to ensure you continue playing fun math games.
