A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Kids can learn about addition, subtraction, number sense, geometry, multiplication, division, measurement, and fractions. In a book named Puzzles, kids practice reasoning and critical-thinking skills. Different models are used to represent many of the same types of problems, which is a good way to reinforce comprehension for young learners. Though the game provides rich content and plenty of positive rewards, the only feedback for incorrect answers is a big red X. Although this is intended as a practice tool, struggling kids would benefit more if they could access a hint for each worksheet. King of Math Junior is a solid math tool that addresses a wide variety of skills.

Is It Any Good?
The unique setting of a virtual medieval society is a fun and engaging way to get kids to practice important math skills. One of the best features of this game is that each skill is presented in a different way. For example, kids practice fraction skills using circle models, bar models, and number lines. The reward system is motivating, and a wide range of content is covered. It would be great to see a way to track kids' learning progress; a report might show how many problems kids got wrong in specific content areas, and a comparative report could identify strengths and weaknesses. Also, math drills alone aren't the most innovative way to get kids practicing math, but the added features are just motivating enough to make this an interesting way to bolster skills.
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.
