Is It Any Good?

Geometry Quest offers a limited number of well-presented questions in a cute travel-themed wrapper. The world map, iconic images for each city, zooming airplane, and animated character (sort of an Om Nom look-alike) establish an appealing narrative. Questions are well worded, concise, and usually avoid textbook language: "Do all the sides have to be the same length in a polygon?" If kids miss a question, a small (hardly noticeable) question mark appears next to the character. If kids tap the question mark, the character gives them a useful prompt, usually in the form of a question or information to consider, like, "Should you add or subtract? Draw the diagram on paper and label the lengths." Diagrams could be a tad larger but otherwise they're simple and clear.

Primary downsides are lack of content with only about 28 rotating questions at each of seven locations and narrow age appeal. Cartoonish graphics are perfect for third- or fourth-graders yet content reaches from properties of two-dimensional shapes all the way to the Pythagorean Theorem. On the other hand, kids who are older or more advanced may master the whole caboodle pretty quickly.

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.
