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

Educational Value

Kids can learn and practice a wide range of fourth-grade math skills as they complete interactive worksheets. The questions within each topic increase in difficulty as kids make progress. Worksheets are scored, and, once kids earn enough points, they get "UFO" rewards. Kids can use these rewards to unlock arcade-style games, but these rewards are completely separate from the learning process, which can lure kids away from learning. The feedback for incorrect answers is excellent because it includes explanations to help kids learn from their mistakes. 4th Grade Math: Splash Math Worksheets is a great way to reinforce skills and motivate kids to practice and become fluent in math.

Ease of Play

Information is well organized, so kids will find it easy to navigate the worksheets and choose the skills they want to practice.

Small pop-up ads for the developer's other apps appear regularly on the home screen. When users tap on the ads, they have to enter the digits that represent a word number; kids using this fourth-grade app will be able to do this with no problem, so it's not an effective parental control. This takes users to a list of apps that can be purchased in the App Store. A free version of the app has a limit of 20 questions per day.

Kids can use the app to practice skills while earning rewards to unlock the games.

What's it about?

4TH GRADE MATH: SPLASH MATH WORKSHEETS GAME is a content-rich math tool filled with grade-appropriate interactive worksheets. Kids can earn points for answering questions, and the points build up to "UFO" rewards, which kids can use to unlock games. The worksheets have a built-in scratch pad for writing out calculations, and feedback for incorrect answers is nicely detailed with mathematical explanations. The parents' section is great for viewing progress reports, looking up a history of gameplay, and assigning homework.

Is it any good?

4th Grade Math: Splash Math Worksheets Game is packed with worksheets that cover all the skills a fourth-grader needs to master to be successful in math. Earning points and rewards to unlock games is motivating, and the brightly designed worksheets are engaging. Unfortunately, the rewards aren't baked in to the learning process, so some kids might end up distracted. Also, some of the worksheets can be a bit redundant, but this is a necessary part of practicing skills and becoming fluent in them. With more than 100 worksheets that cover 12 topics, along with detailed progress reports, the app is a solid buy.
