The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Educational Value

Kids can learn second-grade-level math skills in an entertaining way. They'll use models, number lines, and virtual coins and clocks to answer multiple-choice and fill-in-the-blank questions. They'll also read graphs and tables and compare/measure objects. 2nd Grade Splash Math Education Learning Workbook is a fun, engaging way for kids to practice and reinforce the math skills they're learning at school.

Ease of Play

Kids can easily use the touchscreen. The app tracks kids’ progress as they play and lets them reenter play where they left off. The app is customizable for each kid who plays and is flexible enough to be used by most children with and without disabilities, except for those with vision or fine motor disabilities.

Violence & Scariness

Kids drop anvils on crabs, briefly knocking them out. The crabs recover quickly and resume dancing.

Sexy Stuff

A small button on the title page links to other StudyPad Inc. apps. They aren't needed to enjoy this app, but parents may consider purchasing apps that follow the grade-level development of math skills. In the Parent Setting section, there are links to "gift" the app or share information with friends via email.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that 2nd Grade Splash Math Education Learning Workbook lets kids practice second-grade level Common Core math skills in an entertaining way. You can choose skills and difficulty levels from categories including place value, count and compare, advanced addition, data and graphs, and more. Kids earn little origami fish for their "aquariums" as they go. As they earn fish, they can feed them, make them chase each other, or drop anvils on crabs -- but these aquarium activities aren't connected to the math concepts. 2nd Grade Splash Math Education Learning Workbook does give on-screen notifications of progress in each area, and parents can view progress or get email notifications.

What's it about?

In 2ND GRADE SPLASH MATH EDUCATION LEARNING WORKBOOK, kids solve a series of math problems in an undersea world. Every time they solve 10 to 15 problems, with answers presented in multiple-choice or click-and-drag format, they'll earn a cute fish to add to their virtual aquarium. Kids are given visuals such as number lines, base-10 blocks, coins, graphs, tables, and a clock with movable hands that can help them solve the problems. They'll enjoy playing within the aquarium every time they earn a new fish -- or can continue to tackle math problems instead.

Is it any good?

The graphics and sounds in 2nd Grade Splash Math Education Learning Workbook are clear and colorful without being distracting, and instructions on the screen are visual (clicking and dragging, for example, is an animated instruction). The origami-style fish are cute, and kids will enjoy solving math problems to earn fish for their aquariums. Parents have the option of choosing whether or not questions are read to kids (via a digitized voice), which could be helpful for kids who are prereaders or who have reading difficulties.

The 13 chapters of math topics are well-structured and allow the flexibility to choose a single skill or a range to work on. 2nd Grade Splash Math Education Learning Workbook is much more than a math-facts drill app, as it reviews many of the important number-sense concepts. And parents will feel good about being able to track their kids' progress. The biggest drawback is that the aquarium reward system is completely disconnected from the learning process.
