Excellent Math Games!

We've used this to help our child, who is pretty advanced academically for her age, practice math content that is challenging beyond what school gives her. We LOVE it! One thing I especially like is that most games require no reading, or very little reading; Most games requiring reading have a button that will have a button that will read the instructions to the kid. That is so helpful for kids whose math skills may be well ahead of their reading skills. There's a 'learning path' option, where the kid is given a variety of games and the level of difficulty rachets up as you go - this could be great for a homeschooing curriculum (It's divided into a couple of games per "day", but you can play as many as you want straight through.) There's also the 'free-play' option, where you can play most of the games at any level of difficulty. I really like this because each game does an AWESOME job at gently racheting up the difficulty. For example, there's a 'falling shapes' game that teaches geometry. It starts by just asking you to identify basic shapes - circles, squares, etc. As it gets harder it starts asking you to find big/small shapes, find all the shapes with at least X many sides, at least X many angles, and by the end it's asking you to find quarter and half shapes using fractional notation. Most of the games really are almost a different game when you compare the first and last difficulty level. Topics covered by the games include: -Addition and subtraction up through 100 -Number line familiarity -Time telling and money -Measurement -Geometry/shapes -Word problems -Basic multiplication -Greater than/less than/equal -Logic (Towers of Hanoi) -Counting by groups and place value (10s and 1s)

The developers of Todo Math have taken special care to create a math tool that is safe for kids, inclusive of different learning abilities, and aligned to math educational standards and best practices. The games are straightforward math practice and would be ideal for helping kids complete a few minutes of daily math practice. The drag-and-drop or write-in-your answer options can be tricky at first. Kids have to touch and hold the number to drag it into place, and some traced numbers, if written messily, are not correctly recognized. All in all, there's no gimmick here, just solid math practice with encouraging, supportive feedback.

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.
