Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Overall, this tool is great to have in the hands of kids learning math. Specifically, the varied approach to solving each problem and the breakdown of each procedure into steps make it especially great for users who forget a part. The built-in assessment feature is also simple to use and records success rates over time so kids can see their progress. Because the text can be dense, it's probably a better fit for young teens, but tweens who are strong readers might also benefit. It also seems like the text is translated from a different language, so the wording can be a bit awkward throughout. Ultimately, however, Math 42 might be a boost for kids who need extra help.

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.
