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.

A Lot or a Little?
The parents' guide to what's in this app.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that myBlee Math is a tutoring system designed for kids in grades K through 6. Kids select a grade level when setting up a profile, which customizes lessons based on the selected grade. They are given a brief overview of a concept and then answer a set of questions to test their knowledge. Kids earn puzzle pieces, badges, and trophies for completing levels. A comprehensive tracker allows parents to closely monitor kids' progress and email prizes and encouraging messages to their accounts. English, Spanish, and French are available for $9.99 per language, and kids receive 10 minutes per week for free; additional time requires a subscription or another purchase.

What’s It About?
The first step of MYBLEE MATH requires users to set up an account. You'll need to enter an email address, a username, and a grade level. Then, kids can scroll through the lesson icons and select the one they wish to complete. Each lesson consists of six levels, with brief instruction followed by a set of questions. Kids can repeat lessons, but they have to complete a lesson to move on to the next one. After answering a question using either the pencil tool or a touchscreen feature, kids tap a check mark to find out whether they answered correctly. They receive positive reinforcement for correct answers and a detailed review for incorrect answers. A parent section includes access to progress reports, settings, account information, and a list of suggested lessons.
Is It Any Good?
A combination of instruction and practice creates a comprehensive learning tool, but the fees for more access and choppy audio are drawbacks. The progress-tracking system and the instant feedback are two of the best features. There are plenty of tutorials available to help parents and kids get started, and all the information and features are well organized and easy to navigate. Kids will be motivated to earn puzzle pieces and awards, and parents will find it a snap to monitor progress and provide suggestions and encouragement. Though the sometimes-choppy, computer-generated audio instruction could be a distraction for some kids, and the subscription fees are relatively high, you can try it for free to see if it's a good fit for your kid.
Talk to Your Kids About ...
Families can talk about the importance of math in everyday life. For example, knowing how to add is important when buying items at the store. Knowing about measurement is important when you want to design something.
After kids finish a lesson, have them summarize what they learned by writing a few of their own quiz questions.
