Yummy for Kids

I like that this site is user friendly and offers a variety of ways to engage learning, whether it be from animations to games to apps. Teachers can also track student progress in certain games.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

All kids will dig Math Snacks' exciting and clever animations, but kids struggling with middle school math concepts will benefit, especially by absorbing concepts with ease through playful, in-the-know humor. Topics focus on ratio, proportion, rate, and scale (including measurement) and less so on coordinate graphing, fractions, and decimals. Parents might want to print out the accompanying Learner's Guides, but kids will absorb a lot without them as well. The main animation focusing on measurement and conversion, "Overruled!", is a bit weaker math-wise than the others, but quality overall is outstanding. Two of the games and the video collection are available as iOS apps as well.

Extensions and resources are numerous but sometimes a bit difficult to locate in numerous layers. Game levels ramp up slowly yet steadily, meaning that challenge is always present but tasks are never overly difficult or impossible. Overall, Math Snacks is a welcome addition to the accessible math pantheon.

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.
