Is It Any Good?

While the content is solid, the quality of learning will heavily depend on the ability of a child to ignore all of the bells and whistles and actually solve the math problems. 3rd Grade Math: Fun Kids Games, much like other apps from this publisher, is all about making math fun to learn. It succeeds. Kids will enjoy cruising around in their spaceship, playing games, and decorating their virtual home. But there's a lot going on, all the time, and it's likely to be far too distracting for some kids who may get caught up in buying and decorating items and miss the learning. For kids who do learn well this way, the experience is a quality one. Each game has a video tutorial that shows you how to play, and kids are shown the correct answer when they make mistakes. That said, this is a better experience for practice than for actual learning, as there aren't always lessons that teach kids what to do. If you've got a third-grader who needs to practice but doesn't want to, 3rd Grade Math: Fun Kids Games is a wonderful option. Just be prepared to help out if kids get stuck and to get them back on track if they get distracted.

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.
