A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this website.
Products & Purchases
Google ads that look like the site's content links appear on every page, but they aren't obtrusive.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that there's nothing but valuable (OK, sometimes not really "valuable" as much as very cool: Do you know why curveballs curve?) information for students of all ages on this well-organized education portal. Most of the links will take kids off the site, but where they land is harmless and educational. Minimal text-only ads are usually related to the topic you've clicked on. It's just unfortunate that they look so much like the other legit content links on the site.
Is It Any Good?
Many online homework hubs have tons of valuable information, but everything is so buried that kids never find what they're looking for, making the point of a site like this completely null and void. HomeworkSpot.com, on the other hand, has distinct age and subject categories are clearly divided so kids can go right to the subject they're interested in. And, with the many downloadable printouts, kids are encouraged to give their eyes a break and take their lessons off-screen. Now who said learning couldn't be fun?
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.
