MATH PRACTICE BOARDS can offer solid practice in basic math operations for free. That said, some kids may get frustrated if the level isn't set to their current ability, and even if it is set properly sometimes problems provided seem much more difficult than other problems on that same level. Another potential source of frustration is that if a kid answers a problem incorrectly, the app provides the right answer immediately with no option to give it another try. The best parts of this app are the colorful pens that kids can use to doodle their problem solving and answers. Younger kids can use them to write dots or other visuals to represent numbers, while older kids can draw the numbers, perhaps using different colors as cues for a concept they are learning, such as the one, tens, hundreds, and thousands places. For kids who like doodling, this app could encourage math practice more than other traditional type-in-the-numbers apps.

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.
