Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Let's do the math is an educational app that -- once you get past the difficult instructions -- provides kids practice with addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division problems. Players can select their grade level or age, and problems are provided accordingly. When the player provides a correct answer, the next problem appears promptly. If the player gives an incorrect response, the problem remains the same. If the player is having trouble finding the correct answer, he or she can tap the question mark button, and a picture grid will appear to help the player find the correct answer.

Is it any good?

QUALITY
 

LET'S DO THE MATH is a great idea in theory, but unfortunately lacks in presentation. The application's instructions are filled with grammatical errors making it difficult -- if not impossible -- to figure out how to play. However, the determined players who can get through the instructions will find a decent app for practicing math, with nice visuals to aid in the learning process.
