Engaging games great for practice; glitchy scoring system.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Kids have an opportunity to practice a wide range of math skills with engaging gameplay, but the reward system has serious glitches. Kids will be disappointed to see that, although the window showing points seems to activate, they don't actually earn points when they play the games and get correct answers. Considering the emphasis from the developers on the reward system in Rookie Maths, this is a significant disadvantage of the app. Also, moving around the Rookie world is very tricky. It's easy to get the avatar stuck in less than ideal places, like in between a hill and a building. With that being said, the games are very well done and the hints provide excellent instructional support. Correcting the reward system issues and the navigation difficulty and adding more achievement tracking would make this app a home run.

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.
