"Best of" Lists
19 Apps and Sites for Kids Who Hate Math
Worksheets. Problems on the board. Showing your work. Some common math problems don't even involve numbers -- just frustration. Though many classrooms are trying new, exciting approaches to mathematical thinking and arithmetic, it still doesn't compute for some kids. Thankfully, there are some truly fun tech tools that can bolster kids' skills as they play a game. Since the best apps offer experiences that can only exist on-screen, some on this list let kids apply math concepts in fantastical settings or to real-world problems. Others give kids a new way to see numbers and how they relate to each other. Sometimes kids just need outside help, and there's an app for that, too. Choose an app that works for your kid's age and skill level, and watch the success multiply.
