Is It Any Good?

Math Apprentice is great for helping kids connect the math they're learning in school with the math done by professionals. The simulations are high-quality and engaging and provide opportunities for open-ended learning. Kids will enjoy exploring the businesses and trying out all the different math tools. Learning to program space rovers, animate a character for the movies, and build a better bike are only some of the activities that will capture their imaginations.

The site is easy to use but doesn't keep track of any user information. This is great for privacy, but, unfortunately, kids will have to start exploring from scratch every time. The math concepts, like graphing sine and cosine functions, are challenging -- perhaps too challenging for younger kids. Nevertheless, Math Apprentice is still fun to explore, even for kids who don't know all the math yet.

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.
