Gaming in Outer Space

The app serves its purpose for reviewing math skills taught in a fun game like atmosphere. I would put the visual learners on here because only some of the games say the instructions to you. The rest have a lot of music playing in the background. The really cool thing about this app is as you go on more games unlock and it keeps track of your progress for you in a graph. You collect coins based on correct answers as you go through the games to win trophies and move up the placement ladder. I love how simple it's to use. All of the features contain clear labels for the function of the app you need. You can use this on multiple devices, so students can use it in the classroom and at home.

This title has:

Easy to play/use
Too much consumerism

Is It Any Good?

3RD GRADE MATH PLANET – FUN MATH GAME CURRICULUM has many activities that are grade-appropriate, engaging, and challenging. Kids will enjoy the variety of mini-activities, as well as the fun themes throughout the game. One of the best features is the built-in adaptive-learning tool: As kids play, the game adapts to their individual skill levels. The Skill Tracker is impressive as well, with a graphical display of performance within specific content areas. This makes it easy to identify possible areas in which kids are struggling.

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.
