Is It Any Good?

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

While there's a lot of good math information on this site, the ads (some education-related, some not) dominate the landscape and are sometimes placed on the site's pages in ways that make them appear to be part of its content. The games look and operate like old-school Internet-based games, with extremely simple graphics and rather annoying sounds, coupled with often complex written directions. Also, many teens will find the visuals outdated, which may get in the way of recognizing the good content.

Still, for middle school students and kids who are struggling with early algebra, this site can offer some help as well as an extensive list of other online math resources that may connect more readily with today's tech-savvy students.

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.
