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.

Doesn't Work

I bought their pro-membership for the step-by-step solutions, and it didn't even work! I contacted customer support and they never got back to me.

Wolfram Alpha for Calculus

I subscribed to Wolfram Alpha Pro plan to use for my Calculus homework, but found it more complicated than necessary to use and lacking in other areas for my homework. I ended up using a free website called Symbolab for most homework problems when I found it easier to enter equations there and the step-by-step answers easier to follow. To add insult to injury, the Wolfram Alpha Pro subscription puts you into automatic renewal, so after hardly using it I ended up getting charged for another year.
