Mathspace is a very bad software and is not working for anyone.

My son Jonathan had been experiencing some troubles in mathspace. Mathspace is telling him that he is wrong due to tiny mistakes and is lowering is self-confidence. Although Mathspace allows teachers to assign kids work, the freedom and level of math that Jonathan needs is not included in Mathspace. Mathspace needs to have some individualised learning in order for kids to better learn and communicate their math knowledge

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (15 ):
Kids say (115 ):

These math lessons and practice problems are a great way for kids to build comprehension in a range of topics, but the handwriting tool is a bit glitchy, and the subscription is an investment. Kids get content support in a variety of formats, and access to on-demand feedback makes it a personalized learning experience. The fast track is useful for kids who know the content but want practice; however, it's still a relatively slow-paced option. It would be nice to see some quick drill-style options for building fluency, and a keyboard option could partially solve the handwriting tool glitches. Overall, if your kid responds well and consistently needs extra math help, Mathspace might be a solid choice.

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.
