Math Board is highly customizable

This app is highly customizable - you can setup the operations, number range, and quiz type. It's great for practicing mental math skills and completing math drills. This isn't really a game, more of a math practice tool without having to come up with questions on your own.

Is It Any Good?

MATHBOARD is a highly useful math practice tool, especially for families with kids of varying age ranges, because it can be customized for different kids' math levels from the earliest grades all the way through mastery of basic facts. True, the chalkboard style screen could probably have been designed with a little more color and design pizzazz to capture younger kids' attention. But, overall, the many customizations built within this game will add up to math success for kids who use it to their advantage.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
