About Us

Welcome to MakesMathFun.com, an amazing new site from the KenKen Puzzle Company that offers unique math and logic games that are not only educational, but unbelievably fun and addictive!  Try them out...you'll see what we mean.  Just one warning...once you start playing, you may not be able to stop!

 

KenKen was developed in 2004 by...no, not two guys named Ken...but by acclaimed Japanese mathematics educator Tetsuya Miyamoto. His goal was to improve his students’ math and logic skills...and what better way than using a super cool puzzle? So he developed one that would be fun and challenging for anyone at any level. Most importantly, he wanted to encourage independent thinking, logic, reasoning, concentration, and perseverance. His puzzles immediately met with unbelievable success and are now played the world over, especially on MakesMathFun and www.kenken.com (and over 160 publications worldwide).  Read his personal message here.

 

We realize that many educators and parents are looking for fun and challenging resources, and we guarantee there's nothing as fun or engaging or challenging, or that will build stronger required math skills, than KenKen.

 

MakesMathFun offers several, carefully curated math games and puzzles that will keep you engaged and learning at the same time.  Try each of the following:
