Is It Any Good?
Many high school students will love this app because it can be handy for checking answers on homework and finding quick answers in a pinch, but it can also be a tool for cheating. If kids don't enter the information correctly or if they don't understand the concepts in the equations, 6284 Calc may become little more than the modern-day version of a cheat sheet. For it to be most useful, students would need to buy the "Show Steps" option so they can actually see the process to get to the right answer. The Daily Life Math section seems like it could be the most helpful for quick math answers and least likely used as a cheat sheet, so that's a good place for teens to start. If your kid is supposed to memorize formulas for math class, this is likely not a great app, since the whole point is to have the formulas embedded in the app. Still, for kids who really struggle and who don't have a one-on-one tutor, this might be an OK shortcut with supervision.
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.
