Is It Any Good?

This is a good collection of videos that show how to solve math problems and would make a solid addition to more formal instruction; just don't count on it as a stand-alone teaching resource. Topics have more than one sample problem, and often, a variety of instructors present solutions to the same problem. This is particularly useful if one teacher's instructional style doesn't work for a kid. Many of the topics are rather challenging, so the ability to view stepped-out solutions to multiple problems that cover the same topic is very useful. But it's not perfect. Including opportunities for kids to interact with the site would improve engagement with learners, especially kids who struggle with understanding math concepts. Plus, the constant pushing toward books and book-related videos does start to get old after a while. But, if your kid needs a new take on figuring out a math concept he or she is struggling with in school, could help solve their problems.

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.
