Is It Any Good?

Based solely on pedagogical value, Learn Math scores well. It is in many ways just an interactive workbook, providing good practice in the sorts of math problems that kids typically encounter in the classroom. Kids will perform basic arithmetic, solve word problems, and learn tricks to perform quick calculations in their heads. It's not comprehensive, but kids who spend significant time with the game will likely come away with their arithmetic skills at least slightly polished.

It's just a shame that it all feels so dry. Many sections of the game feel no more exciting than working through sheets of problems handed out by a teacher. There's a little game at the end of each grade -- including a match-three puzzler and an Arkanoid clone -- but these are too simple to serve as real rewards. Plus some of the problems -- not to mention the instructions for certain activities -- are poorly worded and overly difficult to understand. Kids will learn, but whether they'll have any more fun than they do at school is debatable.

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.
