Is It Any Good?

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

The speed and accuracy of the computer solving the math problems is stellar, but the multistep input and lack of explanation for simpler problems makes it best for tweens and up. For younger users, the complexity of the features may be confusing and overwhelming. Some kids may have to click between a few screens before finding the correct input method (finding percents, for example) to answer specific math problems. If used for homework help, this tool will be especially beneficial for kids who are confused by the process or determining where they made a mistake in solving a problem. Note that there's no parent gate on purchases, so set limits on what kids are allowed to buy. Also, it's possible some users may object to the solve screen that shows a boy in glasses and the phrase "Geeks at work." Parents may want to monitor use in case kids are tempted to rely solely on the computer's solved problems instead of checking their own progress.

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.
