Loving Math Again

I love the math that's provided but I do feel unless you review the website prior to the need you will be lost where to find exactly what your looking for. Other than that I love the site for my 2nd grader.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (2 ):

IPRACTICEMATH looks good on the surface and is basically well organized, but a few issues keep it from its full potential. On the plus side, the site gives kids multiple entry points, a consistent layout, and simple yet effective feedback. Explanations and definitions are relatively thorough, giving kids lots of examples and word problems with real-world applications. The consumer math section prepares kids to make purchases as advanced as home loans. Comparing themselves to other users, kids can earn gold, silver, and bronze icons for top rankings based on the number of practice questions they complete, not the percent of questions they get correct. The site's overarching message: Practice often, and don't worry about being perfect.

On the downside, the whole site could use a fine-tooth comb and closer attention to detail. There are typos, bugs (100 percent correct completion of the third and probably final worksheet in a set asks users to retry, and then returns them to the same worksheet), and occasional formatting issues, plus incorrect English and inconsistent capitalization throughout. Younger kids will struggle a bit with the lack of step-by-step progression and likely will feel a bit lost after practice sessions. Plus, teachers hoping to supplement their curriculums will find that concepts aren't mapped to Common Core standards directly; despite claims of coverage, there's no geometry, graphing, or probability included. iPracticeMath could be a great tool to help kids learn math, but the errors and missing elements hold it back from being an essential site for brushing up on math skills.

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.
